Need an research paper on operational mentoring liaison teams in ohio. Needs to be 7 pages. Please no plagiarism. The Ohio Army National Guard has been deployed to Afghanistan with the Hungarian Army since the year 2008 as a part of Operational Mentoring Liaison Team program. I was selected as the senior S3 Advisor for OMLT 1.9 in support of Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and OMLT program from October 2011 to August 2013. My duties as the senior S3 advisor were serving as Non-Commissioned Officer in Charge (NCOIC), conducting operations as a Sergeant Major for the US Hungarian combined OMLT and acting as a tactical advisor for the Afghan Civil Order Police Brigade Sergeant Major.
In October 2011, the 174th Air Defense Brigade, Ohio Army National Guard assigned me as a US/Hungarian Operational Mentor in the Liaison Team of 1.9 for an infantry advisory mission to Afghanistan. This was my third deployment in support of OEF since 9/11. Advising missions are complex in nature and are regularly performed by Special Forces and Civil Affairs units that are trained extensively in performing foreign internal-defence operations. The Operational Mentor and Liaison mission is crucial to the strategic success in Afghanistan but contains certain countless challenges that need to be addressed as International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) tend to transfer accountability to Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF). The OMLT mission can succeed if the NATO-ISAF identifies the proper personnel, leverages the appropriate resources and delivers an effective as well as an accurate assessment tool to resolve the intricate problems within the vastly different ANSF organizations. This assignment as a Combat Advisor provided me with the knowledge and the insight that have profoundly affected my career and life.
The OMLT program is an important part of NATO ISAF which made a greater contribution towards the development of ANSF. OMLT provide effective training and mentoring.
