The History of the United States Space Force and the Space Force Hymn
- By Rev. David A. Newberry
WASHINGTON -- The United States Space Force (USSF) is the space operations service branch of the United States Armed Forces. The sixth and youngest branch of the U.S. Armed Forces, it was the first branch of the military established since the formation of the U.S. Air Force in 1947. The antecedent of the Space Force was the Air Force Space Command which was a major command of the U.S. Air Force. The Space Command was formed on September, 1982 with responsibility for space warfare operations. The National Defense Authorization Act for 2020 re-designated the Air Force Space Command as the U.S. Space Force, and established it as an independent branch of the U.S. Armed Forces on December 20, 2019.
