US Space Force Flag installed at the Veterans Park in Sparta


Thanks to Woodmen of the World representative Tim Bumbalough the US Space Force Flag is now part of the flag court in the Rotary Club of Sparta’s Veterans Park.  It joins the flags of the other five branches of the armed forces, Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard. 

The United States Space Force was established as the sixth armed service branch in 2019. The Space Force operates 77 spacecraft in total across various programs such as GPS, Space Fence, military satellite communications constellations, X-37B spaceplanes, U.S. missile warning system, U.S. space surveillance network, and the Satellite Control Network. Under the Goldwater–Nichols Act, the Space Force is responsible for organizing, training, and equipping space forces, which are then presented to the unified combatant commands, predominantly to United States Space Command, for operational employment.

Woodmen of the World has presented over 3.5 million flags to nonprofits, schools and communities nationwide.
