Why is an Australian fighting with US Green Berets against IS in Afghanistan | ABC

Five years after Australia’s combat operations officially ended in Afghanistan, an elite Australian soldier remains on the front line in the war-torn country, fighting Islamic State (IS) militants.

The Special Forces soldier known as “Mark” is attached to a group of elite American “Green Berets”, who have been operating in eastern Afghanistan’s isolated Mohmand Valley, near the Pakistan border.

His dangerous “advise and assist” mission in the remote Nangarhar province has been documented by journalist Marty Skovlund Jr, who also once served as an American Special Operations soldier.
