Lack of Proper Personnel Resource for ETTs, PTTs, and OMLTs
"There have been insufficient personnel assigned against the ANSF
train and equip mission since its inception. The CSTC-A staff
authorization falls short of the requirement and the personnel assigned
to the ETTs and PMTs fall well short of the authorizaton".
". . . there will still be selected shortfalls of senior grade mentor
and trainer personnel."
