The article says he was a conventional soldier, not a Green Beret. This program has received so many requests from Afghan villages that the military has had to bring in conventional soldiers to perform the basic duties (such as security, ammo stocking, etc.) so that the special forces can focus on training the locals to fight off Taliban.
