Vandenberg renaming to match Space Force designation


VANDENBERG A.F.B., Calif. -- Vandenberg Air Force Base will be renaming the base on Friday.

The air force base will change their name to Vandenberg Space Force Base.

The air force base will be redesignating the 30th Space Wing during a ceremony on May 14 on the Parade Field.

During the ceremony, the 30th Operations Group and the 30th Mission Support Group will inactivate and transition from the operations and mission support group commanders to vice commander positions.

Vandenberg officials say this new organization will help allow squadron commanders to report directly to the Space Launch Delta 30 commander creating efficiency in all areas.

The soon to be Space Force will redesignate the 30th Space Wing to Space Launch Delta 30 under the Space Operations Command of the United States Space Force.

Vandenberg officials says the redesignation is critical to establishing a distinct culture and identity for the Space Force.

Col. Anthony Mastalir and Chief Master Sgt. Jason DeLucy will remain in their roles as the commander and command chief of Space Launch Delta 30, respectively.
