FORWARD OPERATING BASE GANBERI, Afghanistan — Coalition and Afghan forces gather to discuss top issues like education and noncommissioned officer development during the third Annual Sergeants Major Conference, here, recently. Literacy has been one of the biggest hurdles for upcoming Afghani NCOs, so new literacy classes are now being offered to Afghan soldiers who want to become NCOs. “NCO development was the biggest topic discussed,” said Sgt. Maj. Robert Keck, currently attached to the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, “Task Force Bronco,” 25th Infantry Division. “Leadership is very important to developing leaders within the Afghan ranks.” Sergeants major from the coalition forces and Afghan military agreed that soldier improvement and promotion is essential to progress of the military. “It’s progressing at a slow pace, but it’s progressing,” Keck said. The time spent sharing ideas and knowledge will further strengthen the bonds of partnership with the coalition and Afghan forces. Through education and development, the Afghan military will grow and prosper. (Spc. Hillary Rustine | 3rd Brigade Combat Team Public Affairs, 25th Infantry Division )
