Chief of Royal Swedish Navy makes visit to ISAF and Swedish forces in Afghanistan

ISAF | KABUL, Afghanistan - Rear Adm. Jan Thornqvist, chief of the Royal Swedish navy, visited Swedish forces in Mazar-e-Sharif in northern Afghanistan and International Security Assistance Force headquarters in Kabul last week.

 "Sweden supported coalition efforts and the ISAF mission almost from the beginning. Sweden's support and leadership in Mazar-e-Sharif area has been steadfast and seen great success as the Afghans have taken over security responsibility. We honor the lives of the four Swedish military personnel who gave their lives for the ISAF mission on behalf of the Afghan people," said General Joseph F. Dunford, Jr., Commander of ISAF.
