In a First, Army Selects Pilot to Command Delta Force
“Everyone is flabbergasted”
In a historic first, the Army has selected an aviation officer as the next commander of Delta Force, its premier ground special operations unit.
The officer, a “well respected” colonel who is Delta’s current deputy commander and previously commanded the unit’s air squadron, will take command in June, according to a former Delta member. The High Side is choosing not to release the incoming commander’s name.
