Representatives welcome the announcement that Space Force will call Colorado Home for the foreseeable future

DENVER, CO– Representatives Tony Exum, Sr. and Marc Snyder celebrated an announcement today that Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs will be the provisional headquarters of the U.S. Space Command for the next six years. 

“Colorado Springs has always attracted talented men and women from around the country looking to serve their country,” said Rep. Exum, D-Colorado Springs. “It just makes sense that the fine servicemen and women in the U.S. Space Command will call the Springs home too. I welcome this news and look forward to doing what I can to make sure that Peterson Air Force Base becomes the permanent home of this next generation program.”

“Colorado has the industry, the talent, and the dedication to service that is required to host the U.S. Space Command,” said Rep. Snyder, D-Manitou Springs. “I hope and expect that the Space Command will set down roots in Colorado and continue its operations from our state for years to come.”
