The 2020 National Defense Authorization Act, which includes Space Force, was signed by President Donald Trump on Friday. This launches the first new military service in more than 70 years.

For those of you who don’t know, the first new military service since the Air Force was spun off from the Army in 1947. Space Force will be the provider of forces to US Space Command, a separate organization established earlier this year as the overseer of the military’s space operations. However, the new branch of military is not designed or intended to put combat troops in space.

“Our destiny, beyond the Earth, is not only a matter of national identity, but a matter of national security,” said President Donald Trump in a recent statement he made on whitehouse.gov. Establishing the Space Force is critical to preparing the Department of Defense for the evolving warfighting environments of the twenty-first century.

Trump claimed signing the act as a victory for one of his top national security priorities. “Space is the world’s new war-fighting domain. Among grave threats to our national security, American superiority in space is absolutely vital. And we’re leading, but we’re not leading by enough, and very shortly we’ll be leading by a lot,” said Trump.

According to Defense Secretary Mark Esper, “our reliance on space-based capabilities has grown dramatically, and today outer space has evolved into a warfighting domain of its own.” He added that maintaining dominance in space will now be Space Force’s mission.

A senior US Air Force official said that 5,000 to 6,000 personnel out of the 16,000 will be transferred to the Space Force in the future. “The military service members that focus on space, space operators, will eventually be transferred to the Space Force on a voluntary basis at some point in the future, officials say. Support personnel, such as security officers and civil engineers, will remain in the Air Force even though they are assigned to the Space Force,” said CNN.

    I like this idea. We should have had this Space force 40 years ago. Toward the End of the Cold War.

    WE MAY NOT TRUST EVERYTHING THE GOVERNMENT HAS TO SAY, BUT WE ELECTED THEM, FOR BETTER OR WORSE. BUT …….I KNOW THAT AMERICA IS THE BEST THING GOING. ASK ALL OF THOSE THOUSANDS OF PERSONS THAT RISK THEIR LIVES TO TRY AND GET HERE. I VOTED FOR TRUMP, AND I HAVE HEARD MANY THINGS THAT AREN’T THAT NICE TO HEAR. BUT….HE DOES PROFESS TO BE CHRISTIAN, HE DOES SEAM TO STAND BY OUR TROOPS, AND I DO BELIEVE HE KNOWS RIGHT FROM WRONG (DEMOCRATS), HE STANDS FOR THE FLAG AND KNEELS FOR THE CROSS, DEMOCRATS WOULDN’T KNOW THE CROSS IF IT WERE TO HIT THEM IN THE HEAD. ABORTIONS AT BIRTH?
    DEMS SAY OK? THE REAL RICH ARE THE ONES THAT WANT TO MAKE MORE MONEY, SO THEY OPEN BUSINESSES, BUY LAND, HIRE PEOPLE SO THEY CAN HAVE A BETTER LIFE TOO. I AM UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT IT IS BETTER TO TEACH A PERSON TO FISH THAN TO GIVE THEM ONE. GIVE HIM TO OPPORTUNITY, AND HE CAN FEED FOR A LIFE TIME. DEMS THINK EVERYONE OWES THEM EVERYTHING, TO BE BROUGHT TO THEM, AND NO INCENTIVE TO DO FOR THEMSELVES. IF YOU ARE ABLE TO WORK…YOU NEED TO GET UP OFF YOUR _ _ _ AND DO SOMETHING. WIDOWS AND ORPHANS DO NEED TO BE CARED FOR, EVERYONE ELSE GET OFF YOUR _ _ _. I DO BELIEVE THE DEMS WANT EVERYONE TO SIT BACK AND WAIT FOR THEM (DEMS) TO GIVE THEM EVERYTHING.
    IF YOU DO NOT LIKE THE WAY THINGS WORK HERE IN AMERICA – LEAVE – AND LET US KNOW HOW THINGS WORK SO MUCH BETTER THERE. GOD BLESS AMERICA…. I AM A US AIR FORCE VETERAN.

    If you don’t want us live vote for these finger pointing Democrats! I feel like Hillary is behind all this nonsense the Democrats are doing to rid the American people of president Trump! If Hillary was elected would the Democrats have tried to dig up dirt on her. Trump is what this country needed! Let’s see what dirt we can find on Pelosi and Schumer. It’s only fair! President trump has done more for America than any other in our recent years. I for one say “TRUMP IN 2020”!!!
