SUBJ/US SPACE FORCE 3RD ANNIVERSARY//
GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. On behalf of all Marines, I congratulate the United States Space Force on its 3rd Anniversary as an independent branch of America’s Armed Forces.
2. Since 2019, the Space Force has advanced America’s national security interests in space. Guardians maintain the communications, navigational, and intelligence systems vital to success on the modern battlefield. With space being an increasingly competitive domain, the United States military’s reliance on the Space Force to operate and safeguard vital space based assets will only grow. In just three years, Guardians have already made outstanding progress shaping the Space Force to meet tomorrow’s challenges.
3. As the Marine Corps itself adapts to meet the evolving threats from America’s adversaries, Marines know they can depend on the Space Force for the cutting edge capabilities needed to defend the United States in the air, on land, and at sea. Semper Supra Guardians and Happy Anniversary.
4. Semper Fidelis, David H. Berger, General, U.S. Marine Corps, Commandant of the Marine Corps.//
