DoDLive Bloggers Roundtable with U.S. Army Col. Thomas J. Umberg, NATO Training Mission-Afghanistan, Chief of Anti-Corruption. One of NTM-A/CSTC-A’s top priorities is to team with and assist the Government of Afghanistan to develop and grow their leaders for today and tomorrow and to generate a professional, competent, tactically self-sufficient Afghan National Security Force (ANSF). One challenge to this mission is the corruption that exists in Afghanistan and within the ANSF. NTM-A is partnering with the ANSF to develop systems and processes to confront this challenge and reduce opportunities for corruption through advising, training, mentoring and resource support.
