He said we must dominate space because it is essential to the nation's security. Pence said Trump is determined to strengthen U.S. forces on Earth and in space. A Space Force would be a separate branch of the American military. Pence stressed that it is time to write the next great chapter in the history of the U.S. armed forces.
