After consultation with our Great Military Leaders, designers, and others, I am pleased to present the new logo for the United States Space Force, the Sixth Branch of our Magnificent Military!
Space Force leadership presented the flag of the Space Force to @POTUS today in the Oval Office. The flag will hang alongside those of the other military services @WhiteHouse . @SecAFOfficial @AFSpaceCC
Space Force won’t increase our competitive advantage in space, or make America any safer. It’s just another layer of military bureaucracy that we’ll have to pour buckets of money into. I think taxpayers deserve better.
From the article: “In the space of three minutes, Biden got the time period, the location, the heroic act, the type of medal, the military branch and the rank of the recipient wrong, as well as his own role in the ceremony.”
When I hear the term "Space Force" I think of boys playing in a sandbox with their G.I. Joe's and model rocket ships, not a sober or coherent evaluation of the risks of military escalation in or on the final frontier.
"We're investing in new space capabilities to project military power and safeguard our Nation’s interests, especially when it comes to safety and defense."
