Army SFABs need to offer more incentives to staff and retain troops, watchdog says | Army Times

The Army’s Security Force Assistance Brigades faced a rocky start during the initiative’s maiden deployment last year, according to the U.S. government watchdog overseeing the mission in Afghanistan.

The 1st SFAB out of Fort Benning, Georgia, deployed to Afghanistan from March through November 2018.

But when they landed in country, about 20 percent of the unit’s military advisers had never actually deployed, according to John F. Sopko, who leads the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, or SIGAR.
