Capt. Bud Jackson Composite Squadron members’ perspectives reached beyond Earth’s bounds when the New Jersey Wing hosted a pair of special guest speakers from the U.S. Space Force in a recent online session.

More than 110 participants, including visitors from other squadrons, listened as Maj. Jose Almanzar and Capt. Ronald Nguyen discussed the new military branch’s goals and purpose, talked about their jobs, provided advice and covered other topics.

The two talked about the Space Force’s need for bold and diverse leaders with new ideas. They stressed the importance of early exposure to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education.

 “Always take advantage of opportunities presented to you and explore the growing areas of the Space Force,” Almanzar said.

“The sky is not the limit, so it is your time to soar!"
