20 Dec Happy 4th Birthday, U.S. Space Force!
On December 20, 2023, the U.S. Space Force celebrates four years since its establishment. Patricio Enterprises, Inc. wishes all Guardians a very happy fourth birthday!
From the U.S. Space Force website:
The U.S. Space Force was established on Dec. 20, 2019, when the National Defense Authorization Act was signed into law, creating the first new branch of the armed services since 1947. The establishment of the USSF resulted from widespread recognition that space is a national security imperative. When combined with the growing threat posed by strategic competitors in space, it became clear that there was a need for a military service focused solely on pursuing superiority in the space domain.
While the Space Force is the newest service, the Department of Defense has been working in the space domain since the beginning of space exploration. The Space Force consolidates satellite acquisition, budget and workforce from across more than 60 different organizations into a unified, efficient, effective service for space operations.
