For the security situation to improve in Afghanistan one of the many requirements the country needs will be for a capable and effective military to be formed and to become effective to help provide a stable platform on which the country can begin to sort itself out. Steps are already being taken towards this and more and more in Afghanistan it is the ANA – Afghan National Army – who take the lead in operations against the Taliban.

The journey for ANA ‘Warriors’ as they are known, begins at a number of different training locations throughout Afghanistan and with the help of mentoring and instruction from British and US military personnel the trainees are taught many of the skills that they will need when they are conducting operations against the Taliban.

On completion of this training they attend a graduation ceremony at Camp Bastion and formally graduate from their training. At the ceremony a number of certificates are awarded to the best soldiers from within their sections and it is with great pride that they hold aloft their prize on the stage in front of their peers and then shout out over the applause…”Every Day I Work for Afghanistan”.

 

Afghan National Army soldiers wait for their graduation ceremony to begin.
