During the ceremony, the FGOs chanted “Semper Supra,” the motto for the USSF, which means always above. This symbolizes the connection to the start and to the land and space based systems that the USSF members operate and depend on. They also stood in the Delta formation to symbolize change and innovation as they transitioned into the newest branch of service. (U.S. Space Force photo by Staff Sgt. Brittany E. N. Murphy)
