Ignoring the blindingly obvious, which is what that story is, the
reason he's there is that if he doesn't go he might as well do what
his great uncle, no, his granny's cousin (whatever that's called),
did and resign from the army because he won't get any respect from
anyone if every time his unit is deployed he's 'retained for
ceremonial duties'.

If he is still a suicide bomber magnet at least we know their
destination. It is easier to secure one base than an entire country.
