Fort 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.
