VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. —
Just over a year after its activation, the Combined Force Space Component Command welcomed its newest commander in front of a mask-donned gathering of CFSCC staff, community members, partner-nation representatives and others during change of command ceremony at the Combined Space Operations Center. Maj. Gen. DeAnna Burt assumed command of the multinational, joint space operations arm of U.S. Space Command from Maj. Gen. John Shaw, who is set to receive his third star and move to Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado, to be the deputy commander for USSPACECOM.
