From the Document: "Today, the United States took a giant leap forward in ensuring the security of our Nation with the establishment of the U.S. Space Force as the sixth branch of the Armed Forces. Located within the Department of the Air Force, the Space Force will organize, train, and equip military and civilian personnel to maintain freedom of operation in, from, and to space. This new service will provide vital capabilities to joint and coalition forces in peacetime and across the spectrum of conflict. Consistent with the National Defense Strategy, the Space Force will enable us to address current and emerging threats as we compete, deter, and if necessary, win in space."
