U.S. Space Force is Looking a Place to Put its Headquarters

MAY 24, 2020 BY MATT WILLIAMS

In the past year, the newly-formed US Space Force has taken a number of steps to set itself apart as an independent service branch. This included adopting a logo, uniforms, a flag, specialized training for career tracks, a recruitment video, and conducting its first missions (like the recent launch of the X-37B). And now, they have announced that they have adopted a revised approach for locating a headquarters.

Previously, the US Space Force was to be headquartered at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs. The revised approach, instituted by the Department of the Air Force and the Office of Secretary of Defense, takes into account the emerging organizational structure of the USSF and the impact it will have. This move expands the number of possible locations for a permanent USSF base and an analysis process for choosing the final spot.

Further to this, on May 14th, the Department of the Air Force released a nomination letter that contains the screening and evaluation criteria for eligibility. Communities that meet the specified criteria are encouraged to nominate themselves as potential candidate locations by following the process outlined in the letter.

13. To many Republicans like McConnell and Lindsey Graham are currently occupied down there giving Trump

a continues prostate exam with their tongues so there would be no way to use the facilities.

5. People have been pushing an old Stewart AFB NY

here because of its long runway. There is an Air Guard facility too. The MUFan people and UFO theorists would go crazy.

14. Well if they really are determined to do this stupidity I would actually recommend Fort Gordon.

They have plenty of land that they can build any needed air fields on and its also a major communication hub for the military.

9. The Trump administration is looking for

the place in the country that is closest to space. But to be fair, it has to also be a red state.

15. I wouldn't bother finding a location

I think the whole Space Force disappears quietly in early 2021 and gets folded back into the USAF where it came from.
Every President before trump did what they could, without a lot of success, to keep space from being militarized.
