Senior Airman Ricky Teagle, a Schriever Space Force Base Airman, has been identified as the person who drowned Sept. 5 at Rampart Reservoir northwest of Colorado Springs. His body was recovered Sept. 8.

Teagle was a defensive space control operator for the Satellite Control Network with the 22nd Space Operations Squadron, part of Space Delta 6 headquartered at Schriever Space Force Base.

“Ricky was selected as both the Peterson-Schriever Garrison Honor Guardsman and Ceremonial Guardsman of the Year for 2020, and Airman of the Quarter twice at the squadron level,” said Lt. Col. Brendon Herbeck, 22nd SOPS commander. “His incredible professionalism, fortitude, and excellence will be missed among the squadron.”

Teagle joined the Air Force in September 2018, and during his career received the Air Force Good Conduct Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal and the Air Force Training Ribbon.

Grief counseling is available, and a memorial service is being planned by the squadron.

Teagle apparently drowned in a paddle boarding accident at the reservoir. The cause of the accident is under investigation.

Space Delta 11, the U.S. Space Force’s Range and Aggressor Delta, held an activation ceremony Aug. 30 at Schriever Space Force Base.

Delta 11 is part of the newest U.S. Space Force Field Command, Space Training and Readiness Command, which activated Aug. 23 at Peterson SFB. 

During the ceremony, Brig. Gen. Shawn Bratton, STARCOM commander, conveyed command of Space Delta 11 to Col. Kyle Pumroy, Delta 11’s inaugural commander.

“You hold the distinction of being the Delta that, perhaps more than any other, builds readiness,” Bratton said. “Range and aggressor squadrons serve one purpose: to make our Guardians better, prepare our Guardians, prepare our force so when the day comes and we are needed, they too are ready.”

Pumroy is a U.S. Air Force Academy graduate, and most recently was the deputy director, Combined Space Operations Center, at Vandenberg SFB, Calif.

Delta 11 will focus on enhancing the combat credibility of space warfighters.

“We must continue to imagine and create relevant training and testing opportunities to instill credibility into our space warfighters,” said Pumroy. “Doing so ensures the Space Force and its teammates are prepared to compete and win, and if we do it right, ensures our adversaries choose not to fight because our warfighters are better than them, and they know it.”

The Delta’s mission is to deliver realistic, threat-informed test and training environments through the provision of live, virtual, and constructive range and combat replication capability in order to prepare U.S. Space Force, Joint, and allied forces to prevail in contested and degraded operationally-limited space environments.

The Delta currently is comprised of about 100 active duty Guardians and Airmen, with added support from Air Force Reserve Command. The Delta will consist of five squadrons to execute their mission. 

Space Delta 11 and its squadrons are temporarily located at Schriever SFB until completion of the Department of the Air Force’s Strategic Basing Process is completed and approved by the Secretary of the Air Force.

Space Delta 12, the U.S. Space Force’s Test and Evaluation delta, held a squadron activation and redesignation recognition ceremony Aug. 27 at Peterson Space Force Base.

Delta 12 is part of the newest U.S. Space Force field command, Space Training and Readiness Command, and was activated Aug. 23 at Peterson SFB. 

During the ceremony, Col. Peter Flores, Delta 12’s inaugural commander, activated and redesignated its five squadrons.

Flores is the former director of Space and Cyber Operations, Combined Force Space Component Command/Fourteenth Air Force at Vandenberg Space Force Base, California, and more recently the commander of Space Training and Readiness Delta (Provisional), at Peterson SFB.

As space capabilities have evolved over the decades, so has the need to have a military service focused on the space domain.

The Delta 12 mission is to prepare USSF Guardians to prevail in a contested, degraded, and operationally limited environment through the independent test and evaluation of Space Force capabilities, and delivery of timely, accurate, and expert information in support of weapon system acquisition, operational acceptance, and readiness decisions.

The Delta currently comprises more than 300 Guardians and Airmen at five different squadrons, including the 1st Test and Evaluation Squadron responsible for independent testing of USSF operational-level command and control technologies; 3 TES responsible for independent testing of USSF orbital warfare technologies; 4 TES responsible for independent testing of USSF electromagnetic spectrum technologies; 17 TES which is responsible for independent testing of USSF missile warning and space domain awareness technologies; and the 12th Delta Operations Squadron which provides the crucial support structure through which the Delta commander executes assigned missions.

Space Delta 12 and its squadrons are temporarily housed at Schriever and Peterson SFB until the Department of the Air Force’s Strategic Basing Process is completed and approved by the Secretary of the Air Force.
