US Space Force members named as ‘Guardians’

\WASHINGTON: Members of the US Space Force will be known as “guardians”, it was announced on the military service’s first birthday, reports Sky News.

US Vice President Mike Pence said: “It is my honour, on behalf of the president of the United States, to announce that henceforth the men and women of the United States Space Force will be known as guardians.

“Soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and guardians will be defending our nation for generations to come.”  The announcement drew a quick response on social media, much of it ridiculing the Space Force which has already been criticised for its logo and uniform since its creation by US President Donald Trump in December 2019.

One person wrote on Twitter: “It took you a year to come up with a Star Trek logo and a Marvel name? Was your backup the Go-go Gadget Galactics or something?”
