"'[It’s] time for us as a service, regardless of specialty badge, to embrace space superiority with the same passion and sense of ownership as we apply to air superiority today,' he said.
"These are some of the strongest words yet from the Air Force chief of staff to get the Pentagon thinking about space—and to recognize the U.S. Air Force as the service branch best suited for the job. 'I believe we’re going to be fighting from space in a matter of years,' he said. 'And we are the service that must lead joint war fighting in this new contested domain. This is what the nation demands.'"
