Since its creation on 20 December 2019 and with a lineage dating back to 1982 as the Air Force Space Command, what do you think about its rollout?

Do you think the Space Force is stalling on the Reserve Component issue of establishing a Space Force Reserve or Space National Guard that's holding thousands of Airmen in limbo?

Or do you think they're still trying to figure themselves out as America's youngest branch of service?

What do you think of their new enlisted rank titles?
E1 - Specialist 1
E2 - Specialist 2
E3 - Specialist 3
E4 - Specialist 4
E5 - Sergeant
E6 - Technical Sergeant
E7 - Master Sergeant
E8 - Senior Master Sergeant
E9 - Chief Master Sergeant
E9* - Chief Master Sergeant of the Space Force

What do you think of the proposed rank insignia? Personally I've seen better concept art from non-DOD staff that blows the publicly displayed designs out of the water.

What do you think of the thousands of Soldiers, Sailors, and Marines that have requested to be transferred to the Space Force?

Do you think having the Space Force be its own separate branch of service will help streamline issues that people may have experienced with the Air Force?

Will they be able to honor their Air Force lineage and be able separate themselves as an individual branch of service?

I am no expert in this matter but it won't prevent me from stating my opinions. I think the Mission Essential Task List (METL) will be:

- Defend US satellites, space vehicles, assets.
- Attack enemy satellites, space vehicles, assets.
- Intelligence: identify in coming threats, location of the enemy, location of friendly forces, assist in operational planning and the management of operational execution.
- Improve communication and networking to tie in various networks and military assets.
- Assist the accuracy of long range weapons due to the curvature of the earth and counter the enemy in regards to this task. Some of our missiles will probably fly at high altitudes. Some may enter space.
- Create a larger and accurate operating picture.
- Perhaps we can weaponize space vehicles to shoot at targets on earth.
- Space service members will get $200/month for space pay.

I think that's fair to say. Seems there's a lot of Reserve and Guard Airmen with a lot of questions, and that's understandable but the Space Force hasn't even been around for two years yet. I think they just need time to get things organized and squared away.

A bunch of training deployments to every location BUT space, which none of them will likely ever see...

Funny enough I did see a couple of them when I was in Kuwait, so even the Space Force gets sent to the desert it seems.
