The campaign also said it would sell branded merchandise about the Force. The sixth branch of the military will have a few new components, however. Brian Weeden is a former Air Force officer who now works on space policy for the Secure World Foundation. They said the Pentagon report was the start of a "multi-year process that we think will result in a safer, stronger America".
"There is a threat out there but it's being handled by the US Air Force today".
