"Guardians is a name with a long history in space operations, tracing back to the original command motto of Air Force Space Command in 1983, 'Guardians of the High Frontier,'" the Space Force said Friday"

LONG HISTORY eh?
Since 1983 you say....
It is all relative I guess.

Actually, the offspring of Reaganís Star Wars initiative resides almost exclusively in the Army and Navy. The only part going to Space Force currently is the eyeballs of the system. All the ABMs are either army or Navy.

No one is going to mention the metaphorical elephant in the room? No space marines?

Or will they be squadrons/soldiers given the USAF heritage?
