  • A Partner in Battle and a Furry Companion

    Nothing in this world can compare to the bond between humans and their animals.

  • Learning to be a Guardian while a “casual lieutenant”

    When you think of a “casual lieutenant” you probably don’t think of writing strategic messages that are distributed to thousands of people, drafting talking points for a general officer, or coordinating and narrating a two star “All Call” with 300 personnel attending. However, that is exactly what I have done, and more, in my first 2 months in the Space Force. In anticipation of my Officer Undergraduate Space Training date, I was lucky enough to be selected to work on the commander’s action group for Maj. Gen. DeAnna Burt, the Commander of the Combined Force Space Component Command, and it has been a priceless experience in my development as a Guardian.

  • Vandenberg to say goodbye to WWII-era Chapel 2

    As Space Launch Delta 30 and Team Vandenberg build for the future, they sometime have to say goodbye to the past legacies that helped build the foundation of this WWII-era installation that began as Camp Cooke in 1941. Through the years, countless facilities on base have been turned over to help reduce maintenance costs and make way for new infrastructure, allowing Vandenberg Space Force Base to continue improving its range and spaceport capabilities for future launch and test missions. On October 11, 2021, one more facility will join the ranks of the fallen at Vandenberg SFB as Chapel 2, one of four WWII-era chapels that served G.I.s during the war, will be demolished as part of an ongoing program to remove outdated and underutilized structures from around the base.
