CAMP SANDEE WARE, Liberia – Recently, a two-man traveling contact team (TCT) from U.S. Army Africa Inspector General’s Office shared professional knowledge with 18 officers and NCOs of Armed Forces of Liberia during a week-long engagement.
At the request of the AFL, Capt. James Watson and Sgt. 1st Class Bobby Conn journeyed to Camp Sandee Ware, near Monrovia, Liberia, to assist in development of an Inspector General cell.
According to Watson, AFL is a relatively newly formed and compact organization.
“AFL is about eight years old and they are standing up their first IG cell,” Watson said. “The Republic of Liberia is a small West African nation with a young and ambitious armed force. AFL is an evolving and developing organization. This was the fourth USARAF IG TCT visit to Liberia and our goals included reviewing and helping AFL to refine their newly drafted IG doctrine.”
In the U.S. Army, the Office of the Inspector General assists commanders in determining the state of discipline, efficiency and other areas of concern. Often they are asked to work as a problem-solving and impartial fact-finding agency with the objective of helping Soldiers, Families and civilians resolve issues of concern, impropriety or wrongdoing. An IG office is often the place where complaints from these stake-holders are received, investigated and resolved.
