The United States Air Force has named the six finalists to house the U.S. Space Command.

U.S. Space Command was created by the Trump administration in 2019 as the military’s 11th unified combatant command.

Offutt Air Force base, where President George W. Bush stopped on 9/11 has made the list as a possible location for the command.

The winning base will get the headquarters which will have approximately 1,400 military and civilian workers.

Port San Antonio. The City of San Antonio has been a military city for many years and can easily accommodate Space Command Headquarters. San Antonio has many amenities that make it a desirable place to live for those who will be working there.

I retired from Offutt AFB and live nearby. But having 2 major commands at the base might be too much of a strain. Port San Antonio would make a good choice.

Rethink your scenario there, if a war were to break out on a world war scale where would be the best place to reach outer space when the enemy combatants are coming at our borders? obvious answer the center of the USA that way ships are in outer space long before an enemy can get close to shooting them down!

Well, check our Covid numbers here in Alabama? NO “Lockdowns”, everything is “OPEN”, and only 4,000 Covid deaths, with over 70% of the deaths being people over age 75. Chicago has had more deaths from Covid that the state of Alabama!
My county of 33,000 has had 15 deaths to date “With Covid”, not “From Covid”. Over 90% of deaths are people with major health issues like “Heart disease”, “Diabetes”, etc. and over age 65. Too bad Obama never had any coverage on the “Swine Flu” in 2009? Bet you can’t find any recorded counts, no vaccine was even thought about being developed. I never missed one days work in 2009. All he did was “Declare a National Emergency” after 6 months. But you never hear one word about that, do you? What ever happened to “Quarantine the Sick”??? Now dems want a complete “LOCKDOWN”? Sure isn’t what they have ever done before in my life time, When “Tuberculosis” hit in the ’50’s, all I ever saw was “Quarantine” signs posted by the health dept. How times have changed???

Enemy subs and hurricanes, how many hurricanes have wiped out an Air Force base in Florida. And how many hurricanes hit the last 10 years? How close can an enemy sub get to any base in Florida? I’ve seen what Eglin has suffered with hurricanes, I’d like to see the U.S. Navy Seals show how quickly they could take over Eglin. In a “DRILL” that is. My brother was stationed there, And I could have been inside the fence myself in about a minute. Shooting a missile like a Javelin from a small boat would be very easy.

I retired from Lockheed, and been there for Javelin missile tests. We build so many missiles, and could easily add a space command there. Even one plant we closed, the Patriot is not being used now. Redstone has great weather, roads, no hurricanes, and far enough inland to not be spied on from offshore. Bonus, there are thousands of trained people with clearances, and the state is friendly to new businesses. Example, the new $1.6 BILLION Toyota plant that opened in 2020 near Huntsville.

WRONG! There are about 30,000 “Health Care”, “Long Term’ Employees and Residents here in Alabama that caught the Covid-19 virus. They wear N-95 masks “All the time”. And use several masks a day, as once removed, it’s “Hazardous Waste”. Over 75% of cases wore their mask “ALL” or “MOST OF THE TIME”. Now it’s been shown that where people wear a mask, the cases are higher that where people “DO NOT” wear a mask. The mask becomes ‘Warm and Moist” after you put it on. Great material for a virus to multiply. Especially when it’s worn day after day, and never sterilized. That’s my opinion, and it makes sense from my biology training.

Well sorry to say but if biden and crew get in, and with how they feel about the military I feel this will be the shortest command in history. Also those pushing san antionio…..please keep in mind that biden will most likely stop the wall, and maybe even remove what has been built…..so that would mean a wide open border. Heck they can not even stop so called invaiders ……how would they do against a military force?

Patrick Space Force Base, Melbourne, FL. A beautiful base with long ties to NASA and Cape Canaveral. The astronauts used the base during the past past space program and is very close to Cape Canaveral. There is an abundance of empty buildings. The base is in pristine condition. Great recreation areas with beautiful beaches. My husband is retired Air Force and we visit the base at least once a month. We would have loved being stationed here when my husband was active duty.

Strategically, think of the risks of co-locating multiple combatant or major command HQs. Colorado Springs and Offutt would offer a valuable target to our enemies. Redstone has Marshall Space Flight Center and Army Materiel Command. Second, professional workforce availability comes into play. While it is true that military members can be assigned as required, many of the support professionals will be civilians and contractors. Staffing positions at Kirkland is a challenge. So San Antonio and Patrick remain. Does one place the Space Command HQ with the launch facility? My vote goes to San Antonio.

Alabama builds many missiles, Redstone would be my choice, good climate, roads, and many trained personnel with clearances. Look at the missiles we built that got the U.S. into space. They are on display as you enter Alabama at the northern border. I’ve worked on the Predator, Javelin, Hellfire, and THAAD missles, and have inspected at the JASSM plant. We already have a 70,000 square foot facility the Redstone Missile facility. The first satellite into space was put there by our Jupiter missile. We also developed the Saturn missile. Much of our space program has facilities here in Alabama. The state will train successful candidates with the necessary training. We have so many people working in that field already, it would seem like a great fit?

The article confuses “Space Force” with “Space Command”. Space Force is new, created under Trump, and is at the same level as the US Marines.
