ANSF Advisor Guide JCISFA May 2014

The Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) Advisor Guide serves as a reference for currently serving or deploying U.S. personnel and coalition partners. As a reference, it describes and illustrates the historical context, forces, and force structure of the ANSF across the DOTMLPF-P domains. Likewise, this handbook complements the ISAF Security Force Assistance Guide as a means of understanding the ANSF's structure and processes. This reference brings together lessons and operating experiences to offer key leaders and individuals a lens from which to expand and improve upon their professional knowledge base, their skill levels, and their abilities in working with and improving upon ANSF capabilities and capacity.
