“I am incredibly proud of the men and women who made the bold decision to volunteer to join the U.S. Space Force and defend the ultimate high ground,” Chief of Space Operations Gen. Jay Raymond said in a statement. “It is a critical time for space, and those airmen will build the Space Force necessary to compete, deter and win as required to meet the needs of the National Defense Strategy.”

The applicants come from 13 eligible officer and enlisted career fields in the Air Force. About 6,000 of them will be chosen to transfer, according to a news release.

Transfers for those in space-focused career fields will start in September, while more general career fields will start transferring in February, according to the release.

The report said that airmen who do not want to transfer but are in space focused careers will be given the option of retraining, transferring to the reserves, or applying for retirement or separation.

The BLM protests will end when either the DNC or George Soros run out of money. As for the shutdown, you may need to move to a republican run city. Dems don’t want anyone being helped until after the elections in November.
