However, the principles o[ the advisor mission have remained constant through the years, and it is still geared toward the enormous and arduous tasks of teaching, coaching, and mentoring HNSF.
An advisor's success is directly-correlated to the relationship he has built with his HNSF counterpart and his SFAB team.
An advisor should attempt to not overly engage HNSF leaders with unnecessary meetings.
HNSFs are often more receptive to employing and refining HNSF tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) than U.
Some HNSF take an afternoon "siesta," where they retreat to their quarters for rest and recuperation and then come back in the evening to engage in operations and planning.
An advisor should attempt to gain an understanding of HNSF social, cultural, and political dynamics.
While there is little doubt that relationships with HNSF are critical and fundamental to mission accomplishment, little is said of how important the relationship is between and among our own forces.
It is simply not enough for a battalion to build and develop rapport with its HNSF counterpart; it must also embrace its augmented advisors.
