UNMIL Radio -- Women in the AFL

Today (Friday October 26th, 2007), I appeared on United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) Radio with Sergeant Salbie and Sergeant N'Duwor of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL). It was an opportunity to showcase two successful women who have excelled in the new Liberian military. Both represented the AFL and female soldiers quite well. The host of the morning talk show "Coffee Break" interviewed each of us. This was my second appearance on the program. Patience (the host) interviewed me two weeks ago. On that occasion, the topic was U.S. Africa Command. Needless to say, today's interview was much more pleasant. I got the chance to talk about the AFL and how women are doing in the new army. We are trying hard to acquaint the Liberian public with its new army as often as we can. Radio is an excellent method to do so. Most Liberians seem to listen to the radio and UNMIL Radio seems to be one of the most popular stations. [SGT Salbie, AFL on the left and Patience (Coffee Break host) pictured on the right]
