Pence announces that the Space Force personnel will be referred to as Guardians

“We have just returned from the Oval Office and I am honored to announce on behalf of the President of the United States that the men and women of the United States Space Force will be known as Guardians,” Pence said at an event celebrating the first year of the Space Force.

The move marks another fundamental element of the Space Force, so to speak referred to last DecemberIt is the latest in military service and the first new service since the Air Force was founded in 1947. The Space Force was established in part to address concerns about the threat posed by US satellites, which are critical to military operations and trade .
The space forces tweeted Friday that the announcement of the name “came after a year-long process that spawned hundreds of filings and research involving space professionals and members of the general public”.
“Guardians is a name with a long history in space travel, tracing the original 1983 Air Force Space Command’s motto, Guardians of the High Frontier.” continuation, Add “The Guardians name combines our proud heritage and culture with the important mission we carry out around the clock to protect the people and interests of the United States and its allies.”

Pence opened his remarks on Friday with greetings from President Donald Trump, calling him the “founder of the United States Space Force” who has been “an enthusiast” of the service since its inception.

Trump had no other events on his schedule that conflicted with this event on the White House grounds. It is therefore not clear why he was absent, even though the public schedule does not include all of the President’s activities. The White House did not respond to CNN’s inquiry as to why Trump did not attend the event.

Pence also noted that Col. Mike Hopkins, currently aboard the International Space Station, was transferred from the Air Force to the Space Force on Friday.

The term “Guardian” isn’t the only Space Force revelation the Vice President has made in recent days. Pence also announced earlier this month that Florida will be Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and Patrick Air Force Base Renamed Space Force Stations.

“Today we are making history, with the first two installations in the history of the United States Space Force bearing the name of this new branch of the service,” said Pence at Cape Canaveral.
