Raymond Wants Space Force to Develop Its Own Culture

September 6, 2022

Chief of Space Operations Gen. John “Jay” Raymond said the Space Force is creating its own internal culture but said it will take time to fully achieve his three priorities.

“One, we want to have a warfighting culture. Two, we want to have a culture that is bold and innovative and can move at speed. Three, we want to have a culture that is a connected culture,” Raymond said at a recent Wilson Center event, as Air Force Magazine reported.

Raymond said senior leaders are taking a deliberate approach to shape the culture.

“It’s not something that just materializes,” Raymond said. “It’s not something that you can order on Amazon Prime and get it overnight.”
