Armies have used drummers and buglers for years (centuries, even) to help communicate orders during battle. Maybe they're just trying to mix it up a bit by trying out a guitarist.

Besides, with a drum, a bugle, and a guitar you've got a nice little combo for some entertainment during the soldiers' down times. ;-)
