"One of their biggest accomplishments has been the formal implementation of a number of policies that the CSM has passionately pushed to senior leadership," said Petek. "Earlier this month, the 215th Corps commander approved an NCO training plan, promotion and assignment standards.
"By doing so, he firmly demonstrated much needed support for the enlisted soldiers," he added.
Not stopping there, the 215th ANA Corps leadership is forging ahead and is currently looking at their killed in action, missing in action and wounded warrior policies.
"The importance of what happens after a soldier is wounded or killed during combat is incredibly important for morale and welfare," said Petek. "CSM Wali has visited numerous wounded warriors to get a sense of what happens after they are wounded and what the corps does for them.
"He has made it a priority to ensure that each and every wounded soldier gets proper medical treatment, every soldier who dies in combat gets the proper honors they deserve and every soldier MIA is identified and accounted for," said the sergeant major.
Continuing to improve troop morale, welfare and well-being will be an ongoing process for the leadership of the 215th ANA Corps, but will firmly put them in the position to be effective and efficient in their fight to establish a secure and stable nation.
"The Command Sergeant Major of the 215th Corps put it well when he told me, "Give us the help we need- we have the fight,"" said Breedlove.
Beyond the training, advice and assistance mission, Allies and partner countries are committed to the broader international community's support for the long-term financial sustainment of the Afghan security forces.
