Fort Campbell, KY – It is not uncommon for Army brigades to have healthy competition amongst Soldiers when they are required to be in the same room for an extended period of time but during this operation there has been nothing but teamwork and willingness to learn across the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) footprint. Maintenance Soldiers are sharing their wealth of knowledge of technical expertise with one another.

Soldiers receive Non-Standard Logistics training at Fort Campbell

 

5th Special Forces GroupFort Campbell, KY – The mission to subtly deliver crucial supplies to soldiers operating in enemy territory just got a bit easier for U.S. Army logistics operators at Fort Campbell.

Twenty-five Soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division, 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, and 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne), gathered September 9th-13th, for a Non-standard Logistics Course hosted by a team of industry experts from Diversified Logistics Solutions out of Southern Pines, North Carolina.

Non-standard logistics are typically conducted during unconventional warfare operations behind enemy lines, where even the slightest U.S. signature in a denied area can compromise the overall mission.

Small challenge: Breaking barriers for God and Country

 

Written by Gary Sheftick
Defense Media Activity – Army

U.S. ArmyFort Meade, MD – As the only woman to serve as an Army Special Forces chaplain, Capt. Delana Small said the key to success was just being herself.

“I never tried to act like a guy,” she said, explaining that Soldiers look for authenticity. “So I never tried to be anything other than myself.”

Between May 2015 and December 2017, she deployed with the 5th Special Forces Group to Turkey and Jordan.

The operations tempo was high and she admits that she worked hard to stay in shape like the green berets and keep competent in basic soldiering skills in order to maintain credibility, but said the operators always accepted her.
