OPERATION FREEDOM'S SENTINEL (1ST JANUARY 2015 - PRESENT)
Operation Freedom's Sentinel (OFS) is the official name used by the U.S. Government for the mission succeeding Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) in continuation of the War in Afghanistan (2001–2021) as part of the larger Global War on Terrorism. Operation Freedom's Sentinel is part of the NATO-led Resolute Support Mission, which began on January 1, 2015. OFS has two components: counterterrorism and working with allies as part of Resolute Support.

There were 16,551 NATO and non-NATO troops in Afghanistan around February 2020. Around June 2020, that number dropped to 15,937. As of February 2021, there are 9592 NATO and non-NATO troops in Afghanistan.

There were 306,807 Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (self-reported) in January 2020. As of January 28 2021, there are 307,947 Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (using the Afghan Personnel and Pay System) in Afghanistan.

Operation Freedom Sentinel is expected to end on August 31, 2021, just short of the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, and the official end of the US War in Afghanistan and its NATO allies, officially ending the United States of America's longest war.
