National Guard Leaders Petition Biden, Harris for Dedicated Space Force
Breaking Defense
A group of 51 National Guard adjutant generals are asking President Joe Biden to support the
creation of a separate Space National Guard (SNG)—urging him to reverse a decision by the
Office of Management and Budget that would establish an alternative structure. OMB “opposes
a SNG and recently directed the Department of Defense (DOD) to prepare for the voluntary
transfer of National Guard members currently performing space missions to a yet-to-be-
established ‘Space Component.’ OMB’s actions are a mistake,” argues the letter, released May 1
by the National Guard Association of the United States.
