ANA Soldier graduates, gains knowledge in military specialty

29 Jul 2011 | Sgt. Rachael K. A. Moore

The Afghan National Army does all administrative work by hand and without programs that pass information through computers.

For the 215th Corps Logistics Brigade, ANA, there’s only one soldier that assists the administration officer with all of the paperwork.

To help increase their efficiency, the 2nd Marine Logistics Group (Forward) Embedded Partnering Team enrolled that one soldier, Sgt. Azim Sultanzi, in the Joint Administration Course.

“He’s going to be able to help with monthly inspections and pay issues among other admin-type work,” explained Capt. Patrick Ross, the officer in charge of the EPT. “In addition, he’s going to be able to do the job he’s supposed to do, which empowers a [noncommissioned officer] by developing a military specialty.”

The three-week long course came to an end during a graduation ceremony aboard Camp Shorabak, Afghanistan, July 28.

“We didn’t play a huge role in the course, but the entire team went to the graduation to show our support,” added Ross. “We enrolled him in the course and helped him prepare for it. We do as much as we can to let them know we want to help them and support them.”

The EPT continually trains the soldiers so each and every one can benefit the Afghan National Army.
