The Space Force will officially activate Space Training and Readiness Command next week during a ceremony at Peterson Space Force Base, CO.

The Aug. 23 event will establish the service's third field command, following last week's official stand-up of Space Systems Command.

STARCOM will lead the Space Forces' training and education efforts. The service last year established a Space Training and Readiness Delta unit to serve as the "parent organization" to training and operational test units that shifted to the Space Force prior to STARCOM's establishment.
