U.S. Army Major General Winding Down Ebola Mission In Liberia While Awaiting Possible Redeployment Order To Sierra Leone, Guinea

Foreign Policy: ‘We Are Fighting an Enemy, and the Enemy Is Ebola’
“…In a recent sit-down interview with Foreign Policy, [Maj. Gen. Gary Volesky] reflected on the accomplishments of his 2,500-person task force and his immediate plans for the future [as the U.S. Army’s mission in Liberia is winding down]. For a significant portion of his unit, those plans involve getting on a U.S.-bound plane. … But while Volesky is shifting the work to other organizations, planning continues for a possible redeployment to Sierra Leone and Guinea, where the Ebola crisis is far less contained…” (Castner, 1/14).
