Beyond
The rim of the star-light

I know
He'll find in star-clustered reaches
Love,
Strange love a star woman teaches.
I know
His journey ends never
His star trek
Will go on forever.
But tell him
While he wanders his starry sea
Remember, remember me.
I actually knew that from an old book on the series I had "Making of Star Trek" or something. They never sung it during the series - if they had Uhuru sing it back in the day, in her uniformed mini-skirt, with Spock playing Vulcan harp, I would probably melt.

Yeah Village People probably won't fly in the "don't ask/don't tell" military. Neither would singing "Macho Man" or "YMCA".

There's always the "Songify" version (by POTUS himself)!

If its going to be a new military branch then I think it would be most fitting to adapt lyrics to Holst's The Planets "Mars the Bringer of War" piece.

Imagine a chorus singing lyrics to this, much like the powerful Soviet Anthem.

The song should be: "Moon" by the B-52s.

Donald Trump bucks the establishment without fear. He's in a position to know what's out there.
Awesome idea! Think of the jobs that will be created by having to tear down the Pentagon and building a Hexagon.

Lord folks get so many wrong ideas. This is about consolidating command, control, acquisition, etc from the current branches into a single branch to eliminate duplication. Nothing more. We already have satellites in space. Where do ya'll think GPS comes from.

That's not what the news articles linked here are saying:

The Air Force already has a major command that does everything that is proposed. The Air Force Space Command has been around since Reagan and has about 20,000 airmen. Good luck stripping one of the branches of the military of one of their major divisions and responsibilities.

You should re read the articles. They are about NASA. Then some reporter put two and two together to get seven then speculated into an area that sounds much cooler to the public than real details like acquisition programs, and commonality and avoiding duplication. While the AF has a space mission, as do Army and Navy, that's not their primary focus. AF is focused on aircraft. A separate Space Force is something the space operators have been looking at for years. Been proposed several times. Rumsfeld proposed it about 20 years ago, and the earliest I remember is early 80s. Formation of AFSPACE was a mid 80s response. Books called "A Few Great Captains" about the men who envisioned creation of the Air Force out of the Army and "Deep Black" were standard reading for most space operators back then.

Did you just mention the Air Force? REALLY? Do you know where the Air Force came from?

Yep, first it was the Army Air Corps. My Dad was in that in WW2. He was in England. In 1947, they were made an independent branch of service.

My dad, like a lot of men, didn’t talk about the war. And due to a fire in the National Archives (if memory serves) his records, everyone’s records from like C -T, if memory serves, were destroyed.

All I have is Daddy’s DD - 214 discharge papers. Not a complete picture of his service by any means. He did have a Purple Heart he claimed he got from falling off a plane he was working on. He was an airplane mechanic.
