Gen. Chance Saltzman

Golden Defense

It’s been less than a year since Chief of Space Operations Gen. Chance Saltzman was confirmed by the Senate to serve as the second-ever leader of the Space Force. But in that time, Saltzman has been highly focused on preparing, organizing and equipping guardians for challenges and opportunities in the space domain. While his position sees him advising senior U.S. leaders on military space activities, he also regularly engages with guardians via messages he’s dubbed “C-notes” as a way to communicate his intentions and stimulating discussions within the Space Force. Most recently, he sought the help of guardians in revising the Space Force’s mission statement — which now reads “Secure our nation’s interests in, from and to space.”
