U.S. Dept. of Defense:
The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff presided over the presentation of the colors of U.S. Space Command at Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado.
Marine Corps Gen. Joe Dunford said at today’s ceremony that reestablishing Spacecom is supremely important, allowing the United States to retain the high ground in this new world of warfare.
Space is now contested, and for security’s sake, the United States must retain its leadership in that domain, the chairman said.
