Space Force to Increase 10% by Interservice Transfers

Active duty members of the Army, Navy, and Marines volunteer to be new Guardians.

The U.S. Space Force has announced a 10% growth due to interservice transfers from the Army, Navy, and Marines. 670 active duty service members have been selected to become part of the military’s youngest branch. The Guardian numbers had increased in June with 50 volunteers transferring from other military branches. This comes on top of transfers from the Air Force that have totaled more than 5,200. The numbers are projected to continue to grow in 2022 and 2023 as well. 

Vice Chief of Space Operations General David Thompson stated, “Successfully integrating the units, capabilities, and people from sister services into the Space Force is critical to our mission and was one of the driving forces in creating the new service.” General Thompson acknowledged that delays in Congress’ approval of the federal budget this fall may slow down the transition of the service members.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For General David Thompson in his position as Vice Chief of Space Operations.
  • For successful integration of the transferred service members into the Guardian ranks.
  • For the U.S. military as they protect the land, air, seas, and the sky.
