2nd SFAB establishes regional alignment in Africa



By Maj. Jonathan Camire Oct 29, 2020

FORT BRAGG, N.C. – This month, the 2nd Security Force Assistance Brigade (2nd SFAB) sent advisers to conduct security force assistance support for United States Army Africa. This deployment of advisers reflects the Security Force Assistance Brigades' goal of regional alignment.

"The 2nd SFAB is perfectly matched for our theater, bringing a range of abilities and expertise tailor made for (the U.S. Africa Command) area of responsibility," said Maj. Gen. Andrew M. Rohling, the USARAF commanding general. "We will welcome the Soldiers of the 2nd SFAB to our team."

Second SFAB will provide advisers that will partner with foreign security partners across the African continent to increase theater security cooperation efforts within the region.

“The 2nd SFAB advisers are prepared and trained specifically for this type of mission. The advisers that 2nd SFAB provides will expand security cooperation initiatives within the region and build upon our partnership with foreign security partners as we face future challenges together,” said Col. Michael Sullivan, the 2nd SFAB commander. 

The Department of Defense recently realigned 2nd SFAB to the AFRICOM area of responsibility. These realignments are an effort promote enduring regional stability and enable its partners throughout the African continent to lead in their response to threats and build toward establishing and maintaining long-term foundational security.
