Forward Operating Base Freia
Forward Operating Base Freia was located in the Qaysar District of the Faryab Province. U.S. Army embedded training teams from Afghan Regional Security Integration Command - North conducted an operation in December of 2007 known as "Operation Four Seasons," a continuation of "Operation Shaheen Sahara," conducted during November, 2007 in both Faryab and Badghis provinces.
"Four Seasons" was coordinated effort between the Afghan national army, Afghan national police and their coalition mentors. It consisted of, displaying police presence, conducting humanitarian assistance missions to remote villages and performing site reconnaissance for implementing a new forward operating base for the ANA in Qaysar which will replace FOB Freia as the primary operational outpost for the ANA in Qaysar.
Operation "Shaheen Sahara" was part of a winter-long surge evolution where both ARSIC-N and ISAF mentors check in monthly to assess the needs of the ANA and ANP.
