Defense Official Tips Michigan Guard As ‘True Friend’ To AFL

MONROVIA, April 25 (LINA) - Deputy Defense Minister Joseph F. Johnson has said the Michigan National Guard (MNG) of the United States remains “a true partner” to the Liberian Defense Sector in building the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) as a professional force.

Johnson recounted the enviable contribution, through mentorship, that the Michigan National Guard Onward Liberty Team continues to render the AFL, adding, “It is our hope that this partnership will be further strengthened in the years ahead and beyond this current administration.”

Deputy Minister Johnson made the assertion on Monday when the Adjutant General and Director of Military and Veteran Affairs for the State of Michigan, Major General Gregory Vadnais and his entourage paid a courtesy visit to the Ministry of National Defense at the Barclay Training Center in Monrovia.

Earlier, Deputy Minister Johnson, on behalf of Minister Brownie J. Samukai, welcomed Major General Vadnais and his team to the Defense Ministry and expressed best wishes to them during their stay in Liberia.

In remarks, during the visit, Major General Vadnais expressed gratitude to Deputy Minister Johnson and his officials for the warm hospitality accorded him and his team during their visit at the Defense Ministry.

He extolled the Defense family for its positive role in the partnership that now draws the MNG and the AFL at closer latitude, adding that the “partnership is one of the three key pillars of the MNG, therefore we consider our partnership with the AFL very valuable.”

Major General Vadnais assured Liberia’s Defense family that the MNG remains committed to forging an enduring bond with the AFL through the partnership subsisting between the two entities.
