Texas Space Force: Klein High School JROTC Air Force to Transform to Armed Forces Latest Branch

KLEIN, Texas (KTRK) – Klein High School’s Air Force High School ROTC is about to make a big transition.

On Tuesday morning, they will become the only JROTC Space Force and JROTC Space Force in Texas.

This process took almost a year.

In early 2021, the school chapter was named to the first group of the JROTC Space Force after being selected by the US Air Force.

Units selected for the Space Force JROTC transition need to be in good condition, close to space facilities like NASA, and be the best performing.

Klein High School’s JROTC Air Force was one of 10 units in the United States selected for transition to the newest branch of the armed services, the United States Space Force.

“It is certainly an honor to be selected as one of the 10 JROTC units of the inaugural Space Force,” said Lieutenant Colonel Timothy Lambert, senior lecturer in aerospace science. “This shows that our cadets represented the Air Force so brilliantly that they assigned them to represent the new Space Force in the same way.”
The announcement comes just months after the Space Force celebrated its first birthday in December.

The Space Force is the newest established branch of the military. It used to be part of the Air Force, but later under the Trump administration it was turned into a separate entity.

The Space Force is focused on issues like cybersecurity and keeping our satellites up and running in space. It also focuses on monitoring the integrity of our mobile communication, ensuring that it is not hacked. This is an opportunity for Klein High School students to learn more about our military.

The Space Force is not designed or intended to send combat troops into space.

“Sometimes that leaves a little bit of anxiety because, what have we put ourselves in? What is that going to put on our shoulders? Our students always perform really well. It gives us that. I have another goal, I guess, to really achieve what’s expected of us now,” Lambert said.
“I’m incredibly excited about the Space Force program. I’m excited to be a representative of change, expanding our program, incorporating new information, and being able to serve our community.” us more by expanding our service project aspirations,” said student Alissa Zenero last April.

Klein High School will join other schools from places like Las Vegas, Phoenix, and Arlington, Virginia, making history as the first JROTC programs to make this transition.
