Posted: Sat, Jun 13, 2020, 9:25 AM ET (1325 GMT)
More than 8,500 airmen have applied to transfer to the US Space Force. Officials said they were anticipating about 7,000 would volunteer to give up their commission in the Air Force and transfer to the Space Force when the Space Force accepted applications last month. The Space Force is reviewing transfer applications and expects that approximately 6,000 of the 8,500 will be selected for transfer. Those in space-focused career fields could transfer as soon as September, although others may not join the Space Force until early next year.
