“Mr Sakhizada is transition personified; he has worked at CTC-A for some time and is now part of a developing instructional capability, providing vital Afghan insight and perspective,” said lead DSF training coordinator  Lt. Col. William Shanahan.

COIN and DSF courses are open to Coalition and GIRoA alike, integrating a broad cross section of counterinsurgents in Afghanistan.

The DSF is designed to directly target the root causes of instability using carefully thought out, cost effective activities.

CTC-A delivers the DSF each month on residential courses at Camp Julien and by on site Mobile Training Teams.
