14 female ANA officers complete training

Nov 24, 2011 - 18:44

KABUL (PAN): Fourteen female Afghan National Army (ANA) officers on Thursday graduated from a training course, taking the number of females in the Afghan army to 348, officials said.

The contingent successfully completed the five-months training on radio communication and human resource management from Afghan, US and British mentors, the Chief of Army Staff, Gen. Sher Mohammad Karimi, told the certificate-giving ceremony.

He praised the graduates, saying their families would feel proud that their daughters offered a great service to the nation by joining the country's armed forces.

One of the graduates, second lieutenant, Muzhgan, said it was her wish to serve for the country and preferred working with ANA. “I want to defend the country shoulder by shoulder with our brothers,” she said.

“I want my daughter to be a role model for other Afghan girls and she proved that other girls also can play an important role in the country's defence,” the father of a graduated girl, Mohammad Aman, said.

It was the third female group graduating from the ANA training centre in Kabul. Currently, 120 Afghan pilots, including four women, have been sent to the US for a two-year training.
