The Space Force was established on December 20 last year, and is described as a “military service that organizes, trains, and equips space forces in order to protect U.S. and allied interests in space and to provide space capabilities to the joint force.”
The official mission statement also explains how its responsibilities include “developing military space professionals, acquiring military space systems, maturing the military doctrine for space power, and organizing space forces to present to our Combatant Commands.”
Last week, it was also announced by the United States Department of Defence that Space Force personnel would from now on be known as “Guardians.” They join the ranks of military Soldiers, Airmen, Sailors, and Marines.
Vice President Mike Pence announced the new name for military Space Force personnel during an event at the White House, where he also celebrated its first anniversary.
“It is my honor, on behalf of the President of the United States, to announce that, henceforth, the men and women of the United States Space Force will be known as ‘Guardians,’” he said.
He also urged every Guardian to “keep pushing the vision and the mission of the United States Space Force, which is to ensure that America remains as dominant in space.”
Earlier this year, the Space Force released an inspiration video discussing their vision for the future of the department.
“Now is the time for a military branch with a clear and singular focus on space,” it said.

“Space Force protects this frontier. The Sky is not the limit.”
If President Donald Trump can’t secure election integrity in time, and Joe Biden does become the next president, then President Trump can certainly rest assured that he will be remembered to establishing the most forward-thinking new branch of the United States military.
