Slovak Land Force Ends Mission in Kandahar
The Slovak contingent operating in Kandahar has ended its mission in September, 2014. The Slovak element had a two-fold mission: base defense and advising an Afghan army kandak. The base defense mission involved the guarding of entry control points where vehicles and visitors were searched as they entered and left Kandahar Air Field (KAF). In addition, the Slovak unit fielded the Security Force Assistance Advisory Team (SFAAT) that trained, advised, and assisted the 4th Kandak, 2nd Mobile Strike Force of the Afghan National Army (ANA). The Mobile Strike Force or MSF had a unique mission and was designed to rapidly deploy wherever needed.
