Peterson, Schriever, Cheyenne Mountain Renaming Ceremony (Photo) - 07/21/21

Peterson Air Force Base, Schriever AFB and Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station are being renamed to better reflect their role in the U.S. Space Force.

Following an 11:30 a.m. ceremony July 26 at Peterson AFB, the three locations will adopt the monikers Schriever Space Force Base, Peterson Space Force Base, and Cheyenne Mountain Space Force Station. The three installations are home to vital parts of the nation’s space control, surveillance and command missions.

U.S. Space Force Gen. John “Jay” Raymond, chief of space operations, will preside over the ceremony, along with USSF Col. Zachary “Shay” Warakomski, Peterson-Schriever Garrison commander.

This action is part of the overall initiative by the Department of the Air Force to establish a unique identity and culture within the U.S. Space Force, the nation’s newest military branch, and more accurately reflect the important space missions performed by Guardians stationed there.

Peterson is home to Space Operations Command and Space Deltas 2, 3 and 7; Schriever hosts Joint Task Force-Space Defense and Space Deltas 6, 8 and 9; and Cheyenne Mountain is host to numerous sensitive space-related missions.
