Guardians of the Galaxy; the new title of our Space force - The only service to have no members where they serve

Space Force Members Will Be Called 'Guardians'​

Well who would ever have thought we would have an entire branch of the military...with members that do not serve in the region (space) that they protect.

Shortly, Russia and China will announce their respective branches of the space force, however their is fierce competition for the "Imperial Klingon Defense Force" and "Galae s'Shiar Rihan".

Guardians...yes, guardians of the Planet Earth...this title will actually appear on government stationary and be in our budgets. Does anyone have any idea how cool this will make the flags on walls of trailer parks? We will go from howling wolves, flying eagles imposed over an American Flag to spaceships flying around planet earth.

Congrats to Trump for perhaps the ultimate troll of our military oops, Guardians...

The Army has soldiers. The Navy has sailors. Now, one year after its creation, it's official: The Space Force has "guardians."
Vice President Mike Pence revealed the moniker during remarks celebrating the first anniversary of the military branch on Friday.
"It is my honor, on behalf of the president of the United States, to announce that, henceforth, the men and women of the United States Space Force will be known as 'guardians,' " Pence told a room of military and other government officials, who broke into applause as Pence nodded and smiled. "Soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, and guardians will be defending our nation for generations to come."
In a statement, the Space Force explained that the name was the product of a yearlong process that drew hundreds of submissions.
"The opportunity to name a force is a momentous responsibility," Space Force said. "Guardians is a name with a long history in space operations, tracing back to the original command motto of Air Force Space command in 1983, 'Guardians of the High Frontier.' "

The Space Force announced in February that it was seeking ideas on what its members should be called.
"Proposals must be gender-neutral, distinctive and should emphasize a future-oriented military force," the military branch said at the time, adding that submissions couldn't violate copyrights or infringe on others' intellectual property.
And yet, while the name seemed well received by those in attendance at the anniversary speech, others noticed it seemed cribbed from the Marvel franchise Guardians of the Galaxy. After Pence's announcement, Guardians director James Gunn tweeted: "Can we sue this dork?"
It's not the first time the Space Force drew attention for seeming to borrow from popular culture. When the branch announced its logo in January, sci-fi fans immediately noticed the similarities to the Starfleet insignia from Star Trek. In fairness, though, the logo had more in common with the existing logo for the Air Force Space Command, America's precursor to the modern Space Force.
In the year since the force was created, the Space Force's ranks have grown to about 4,000 members — or guardians. Two Air Force stations in Florida were officially redesignated as Space Force facilities earlier this month.
