Air Force Proposal Would Move Guard Units from Seven States to Space Force

April 4, 2024

The Air Force has sent Congress a legislative proposal to move seven Air National Guard units that have space-related missions into the Space Force, according to Military.com. The Air Force didn’t provide a comment for the article.

The National Guard Association of the United States is against the idea, which it said seeks to “bypass the long-standing requirement in federal law for the Pentagon to obtain a governor’s consent before transferring a National Guard unit to another branch of the military.”

NGAUS told Military.com there are currently 1,000 Air National Guard members across 14 units operating space-related missions in Alaska, California, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, New York and Ohio.
