(UnitedVoice.com) – The Pentagon’s seventh military branch has its first official commander.
Air Force General John Raymond was sworn in on Jan 14th, as the Chief of Space Operations for the United States Space Force.
Raymond is a 4-star general who’s currently serving as the commander of the US Space Command and Air Force Space Command. He was sworn in by Vice President Mike Pence, and the ceremony itself ruffled some feathers.
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation issued a statement on Sunday because they’re upset a Bible was used to swear in Raymond and that it was blessed and dubbed “the official Bible for the new US Space Force,” during a ceremony at the Washington National Cathedral.
Currently, there are no troops for Raymond to command. It’s expected that service members from the Air Force will be chosen over the next few months.
