Vincent, DCOM-Regional Support (left), observes Afghan National Civil Order Police recruits disassemble and assemble with cadre assistance an AMD-65, the Hungarian version of the AK-47, April 10, at the German-operated Konduz Regional Training Center in northern Afghanistan. Vincent, stationed at Camp Eggers in Kabul, was visiting as part of a four-day battlefield circulation of training sites. The recruits go through a four-week literacy course, six weeks of basic ANCOP, and eight more weeks of advanced training before graduating prior to their first assignment. ANCOP's mission is to provide civil order presence patrols, prevent violent public incidents, and provide crisis and anti-terror response in urban and metropolitan environments.
