California’s Vandenberg Air Force Base renamed to Space Force Base

“Redesignating Air Force installations as Space Force installations is critical to establishing a distinct culture and identity for the Space Force,” a base statement said.


Vandenberg’s host unit, the 30th Space Wing, will be redesignated Space Launch Delta 30, under Space Operations Command.


Vandenberg was originally established in 1941 as Camp Cooke, an Army garrison for tank, infantry and artillery training.


Its geographical location near Lompoc in Central California made it ideal for missile tests and launches into polar orbit.


The Space Force was created as the sixth uniformed military branch in 2019 during the administration of former President Donald Trump.
