    Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines...Space Corps?

    Congress might create a new military branch: the Space Corps

    If your dream in life is to be a guardian of the galaxy, that may be an option sooner than you think. Representatives in the House Armed Services Strategic Forces Subcommittee are considering legislation to create a new branch of the U.S. military the Space Corps to organize space missions by 2019.

    The legislation in question is an amendment to the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the annual military funding and policy bill. The proposal would make the Space Corps an independent branch under the aegis of the Air Force, much like the relation of the Marine Corps to the Navy.

    Army didn't want to give up Air Corps either, I don't believe, back in the day.

    I'm betting that we already have more than a handful of space based weapons at our disposal if needed. Probably a few that have already been secretly deployed.

    Nah...just got tired of typing the thread title, I guess I could have also added the US Merchant Marine as well!

    Since I call on them, I can't wait to get the frequent flyer miles on that trip. Hope the HQ is stationed on the moon.

    I'm guessing NASA knows something is on its way.
