SENTEL President Kip Ward Receives Award from Liberia
As a part of Liberia’s Independence Day Celebrations at the Liberian Embassy in Washington, DC, Liberian Ambassador to the U.S. presented (on behalf of Liberian President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf) the Armed Forces of Liberia Distinguished Service Order to SENTEL President Retired Army General Kip Ward. The award was presented to Ward for his strategic vision and leadership as commander USAFRICOM in support of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL), enabling the AFL to build a professional and capable military force. As a result, the United Nations Mission in Liberia is coming to a close this year.
