    What a shame that the General doesn't have the surname 'Rogers'.

    I wonder what tune they would choose as a march

    Or perhaps

    "Have you heard
    It's in the stars
    Next July we collide with Mars?
    Well did you ever
    What a swell party this is"

    You think they'd have given it to the US Navy and called it StarFleet...

    What’s their motto? To infinity and beyond?

    I love it. Our forces in the Mideast are so strapped for infantry that the men are being compelled to do multiple tours, they've just been handed a potential new front of uncertain dimensions (Iran), Putin might jump on the Ukraine any time, North Korea is a time bomb, and we've just created a Space Force. How the hell does that help win a ground war? We need TROOPS, damn it. To get those troops we need a draft, of course, but everyone here is too cowardly to face facts. I think the real space is in the policymakers' heads.

    I haven't been following the story too closely but isn't the purpose to provision and protect our satellites? That's important although I think the Air Force could do it just fine.

    Manned flight is a complete waste of money, in my opinion. Humans are the weak link in space flight and add at least ten fold to the cost. Nothing they can do in space that computers, robots and remote control apps can't.

    Where the fleet of stars is anchored and the young star captains glow!"
