I was in the Marine Corps and you hear conspiracies about an elite Marine Recon called ‘Space Marines.’ I never believed it, but often fantasized about it. Well at least that fantasy about serving in a fighting force in space is actually happening. On Thursday, Vice President Mike Pence announced plans for the new military branch moving full speed ahead into space. 

 

 

The Trump administration says that is will 100% be moving forward with the creation of the United States Space Force. Pence continued, “The time has come to establish the United States Space Force.” He said the Pentagon is to establish a new unit and upgrade it into a 6th military branch by 2020.” He continued, “America will always seek peace, in space as on Earth,” Pence said. “But history proves that peace only comes through strength. And in the realm of outer space, the United States Space Force will be that strength.”

 

According to American Military news:

 

The Pentagon will release a report, as required by Congress, that will include recommendations for approaching space as a military domain. The report was originally scheduled for release on Aug. 1, but was delayed due to ongoing revisions.

A draft of the Pentagon’s report was acquired by Defense One, who reported that a four-star general would be at the helm of a combatant command for space, while an agency would be tasked with procuring satellites.
