U.S. Space Force Lt. Gen. John Shaw, deputy commander of U.S. Space Command at Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado, speaks to cadets at the U.S. Air Force Academy on April 28, 2021. Shaw visited the academy to discuss the importance of its mission of developing leaders of character as it relates to U.S. interests and capabilities in space. The general answered questions from the crowd of 100 cadets who will commission into the Space Force next month about becoming the U.S.' newest Guardians. Shaw graduated from the academy in 1990 with a degree in astronautical engineering and a minor in Russian anguage.
