Space Command At Vandenberg

A number of California lawmakers are pushing for Vandenberg to be the headquarters of the new Space Command. Congressman Salud Carbajal, Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris sent a letter to the Secretary of the Air Force urging the Lompoc Air Force base to be chosen as the central headquarters for the new combatant command. Last month Vandenberg was on a short list of bases as a potential headquarters. A decision on a preferred location is expected sometime this summer.
