‘Guardian angel’ need for advisers in Afghanistan drives call for more troops

The job of about a dozen soldiers is to protect just two international advisers on their way to meet Afghan soldiers. While every mission varies, for every adviser deployed in Afghanistan as part of a NATO-led multinational force, many more soldiers are tasked with providing security and support. The minimum security requirements mean that providing even just a few thousand advisers for Afghan security forces is a monumental task that, if continued, will keep many thousands more international troops and contractors facing daily threats. Fewer than 25 percent of coalition troops in Afghanistan are dedicated advisers – with the rest either in a security, support or a combined role. The need to balance the force with more advisers is a driving factor behind the military’s request for more troops, which has met with scepticism in Washington, where Trump was elected on a platform of reducing American commitments overseas. Just two days after that, Romanian soldiers providing security for advisers in Kandahar were forced to shoot and kill an Afghan policeman who attacked the international troops. “We’re there in the background if anything happens,” said ranger Riley Tolliday, describing his job as a “Guardian angel” escorting advisers to meetings around the Afghan capital. MORE ADVISERS NEED MORE PROTECTION. Even at the height of the international military mission in Afghanistan, a large proportion of troops was involved behind the scenes providing security and other support for the main mission. Of the 12,447 troops from 39 countries that make up the NATO-led Resolute Support mission, about 2,865 are classified as advisers, according to numbers provided by the coalition. Among the enablers plus command-and-control troops, many also have part-time roles advising Afghan counterparts, but the numbers reveal the massive number of supporting troops needed to field even a limited advising mission. While the U.S. military has used contractors to buttress the force in Afghanistan, including using private guards for security around some bases, officials say they hope to reduce overall reliance on contractors by deploying more troops. The command in Kabul is now waiting on the stalled request for thousands more American troops, which they hope will allow them to deploy more soldiers dedicated to working with the Afghans, but also a “Significant” number to provide more security, said one senior military official. Security services have seen a recent increase in demand as advisers try to reach more Afghan units, Martin said. The troops tasked with escorting the advisers on their missions have to not only provide protection from potential militants, but also from so-called insider attacks by members of the Afghan security forces, who have occasionally turned on their foreign allies.

Mission Guardian Angel is uniquely designed and dedicated to conduct Personnel Recovery across the full range of military operations and during all phases of joint, coalition, and combined operations. Its most fundamental mission tasks are: 1) to prepare personnel who may be isolated or become missing while participating in U.S. government sanctioned military activities, 2) to conduct recovery operations during peacetime and war, and 3) to lead reintegration operations after a recovery. Guardian Angel may be visualized as the ground element of the USAF Rescue triad, and commonly functions in conjunction with USAF HH-60 helicopters and HC-130 aircraft. When tasked separate from the triad, Guardian Angel may work autonomously or be integrated with joint or coalition forces, including: Special Operations Forces, vertical lift, airdrop, command and control, resupply, close air support, and ground mobility assets. Features Guardian Angel delivers military and civilian leaders eight foundational capabilities across the Personnel Recovery continuum: 1) preparation of potential isolated personnel; 2) completion of Personnel Recovery mission planning; 3) insertion of recovery forces; 4) tactical movement to an objective area; 5) execution of actions on the objective; 6) extraction of recovery forces, friendly forces, and isolated personnel; 7) reintegration of isolated personnel; and 8) adaptation and application of lessons learned following any operations. Guardian Angel responds to these challenges and can deliver these eight capabilities anytime and anywhere. Background Guardian Angel is comprised of Combat Rescue Officers, Pararescuemen, Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape Specialists and uniquely trained support personnel dedicated to the Air Force core function of Personnel Recovery. The elite warriors that comprise Guardian Angel have conducted over 12,000 lifesaving, combat rescue missions since September 11th, 2001. They’ve trained over 200,000 Department of Defense Personnel in SERE techniques and conducted over 240 reintegrations. General Characteristcs The desired Guardian Angel operational effect is to quickly return friendly forces to duty while denying adversaries a source of intelligence and political exploitation. The effect is achieved across the range of military operations. Guardian Angel may engage in Combat Search and Rescue operations in a contested military environment, participate in Building Partnership Capacity and Irregular Warfare before conventional hostilities begin, and conduct humanitarian operations in support of our allies during peacetime. Non-combat responsibilities are met by applying strategic intent and the universal desire to conduct operations that mitigate human suffering and save human lives.

Tyler James Williams Lyrics

“Guardian Angel”(with Coco Jones) They say I’m young But my purpose is the inspiration of a nation innovation ‘Til I change the talk into a conversation I’m like a doctor and my patients are anxiously waiting Healing all the hating That faking in the paper chasin’ It’s hard to live up to these expectations that I’m facing And gain the admiration of an older generation That’s why I’m pacing back and forth contemplating Meditating how to use what I’ve been taught as a positive force. Oh! Oh!This is who I am(it’s all me y’all)I wish you’d understand(I’m feeling free y’all)It’s time to set me freeMy guardian angelNo! No!No matter what I do(they tried to stop me)I’m still a part of you(but they can’t stop me)I hope you’ll always beMy guardian angel. I wanna be the greatest in the worldNot for the money or the fame or the girlsNot for the car keys, or the jet skis, or the vacation to the West IndiesBut simply ’cause I love itWhen I write I’m like a puppeteerPullin’ my strings’ ’til the melody singsAnd the honesty makes me spread my wingsCalling me out was out of your mindSend that thought back down your spineI’m on the grind, it’s all on the lineRoad sign say both ways at the same timeMost days I can’t wait to rhymeExpress my stress, elevate and shineProgress, regress, each step’s a climbSo I take that test and I testify. I feel so misunderstood’Cause my intentions were goodIf you could only see that poetry can hide in the hoodThe passion in philosophy of possibilitiesEvery dream is in my reachI’ll find my freedom in this beatFollow me now, it’s a brand new groundSwallow your pride I’ll make you proudAll of my life I’ve lived out loudWe just preached to different crowds. Oh!This is who I amI wish you’d understandIt’s time to set me freeMy guardian angel. Oh! Oh!This is who I am(it’s all me y’all)I wish you’d understand(I’m feeling free y’all)It’s time to set me free(Oh, it’s time to set me free)My guardian angelNo! No!No matter what I do(no matter what I do)(they tried to stop me)I’m still a part of you(but they can’t stop me)I hope you’ll always beMy guardian angel. Thanks to jordan, Kenisha Vincent, Hope Winters, Daniel Onyeanula, Katie Hughes for correcting these lyrics.
