Rank Insignia for the new Liberian Armed Forces??

Unread postby Chuck Anderson » Fri Sep 11, 2009 9:32 pm

Hi Everyone!

Liberia is reorganizing their armed forces, to take the place of the former Liberian armed forces from their civil war.

Does anyone here have any indications as to what the rank insignia will be for the new, reorganized Liberian armed forces?

Hi Chuck, I have been trying to find such information about the Liberian military and the Liberian National Police for years now but I have had little luck. Information of any sort regarding Liberia is very hard to come by.

I would imagine it's very similar to our rank insignia given Liberia's history and very close relationship with the US. In fact, during the mid/late 1990s the Liberian government flirted with the idea of having a referendum over the issue of becoming a US territory. IIRC after the Liberian Civil War ended, the UN even wanted to make them a US administered UN Trust Territory before Clinton politely rejected the idea.

I have not found any pictures yet, but Libyan Army Chief Khalifa Hifter has been promoted to field marshal. I think that makes him Libya's first field marshal!

Yes, I picked the wrong topic folder by mistake. But Libya does have a new field marshal. Khalifa Hiter has advanced from 2 to 5 "stars" in about one year.
