Afghan War News > Operation Freedom's Sentinel

The new United States military mission in Afghanistan beginning in 2015  will be known as Operation Freedom's Sentinel (OFS). It will be part of the NATO-led Resolute Support Mission. Operation Freedom's Sentinel is the follow-on mission to Operation Enduring Freedom. OFS is focused on developing Afghan institutional capacity to enchance security and stability across Afghanistan. The United States military forces in Afghanistan are conducting " . . . two narrow, well-defined, and complementary missions: training, advising and assisting the ANDSF and supporting counterterrorism operations against remnants of al Qaeda and its associates." 1.
