@joelhamill @JohnPhilpin In the early rocket days the USN and USAF were both trying to build rockets for space. NASA was created to take civil and scientific exploration of space out of military hands.
In this case both USAF and USN have their own narrow needs and agendas (ie. navigation, finding enemy submarines or planes) Neither is able to step back and look at the Big Picture of defending against militarized Space. Hence Space Force.
I can see the logic, however because of who established it I'm having a hard time taking it seriously.
