To boldly go where no man has gone…

America’s newest military service now has its own flag. And if you are a fan of Star Trek, then it may look familiar. 

The U.S. military’s newest service unfurled its flag for the first time at the White House in the Oval Office and was presented to President Trump. It now stands next to the other service flags. It is the first new service flag unfurled in 72 years.

Air Force Secretary Barbara Barrett, Chief of Space Operations General Jay Raymond, and senior enlisted adviser Chief Master Sgt. Robert Towberman all took part in the ceremony in presenting the U.S.’s sixth and newest service. President Trump was pleased and said that the United States was now the leader in space. 

“China and Russia, perhaps others, have started a lot sooner than us, we should have started this a long time ago but we’ve made up for it in spades,” President Trump said.

“Space is going to be the future, both in terms of defense and offense and so many other things,” he added. “And already, from what I’m hearing and based on reports, we’re now the leader in space.”

Of course, the President then took to Twitter to post about the event.
