Members of the Mongolian Armed Forces huddle to listen to an after actions review provided by an instructor from the Asia Pacific Counter-Improvised Explosive Device, or IED, Fusion Center, at Five Hills Training Area, Mongolia. The Mongolians just completed a training exercise that sharpened their skills in recognizing and defeating IEDs while on a mounted patrol. The counter IED training was part of Khan Quest, a U.S. Army Pacific exercise August 11-23, 2012. Khan Quest is held annually with the Mongolian Armed Forces and promotes multinational cooperation and regional security.
