The 7th Commando Kandak recently held its graduation at Camp Morehead, Afghanistan in January. This unit will join six other Commando Kandaks currently deployed throughout Afghanistan. U.S. Special Forces and other SOF forces have been assisting Afghan commando instructors since September 2006 in the formation of the commando battalions. The course is 12-weeks long. The commando units are a " . . . light infantry unit capable of being rapidly deployed to conduct raids and strikes against insurgents."
