Brevard: Patrick AFB finalist for Space Force headquarters


After first being shunned, Florida is a finalist to be the home of the U.S. Space Command headquarters, the U.S. Air Force announced Thursday.

Patrick Air Force Base in Brevard County is one of six finalists for the headquarters of the military’s space operations. The Air Force initially announced six other finalists in 2019, and Florida wasn’t on the list. But the Air Force restarted the selection process because of complaints that it hadn’t been transparent enough.

The other locations on the final list are Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico, Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska, Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado, Redstone Army Airfield in Alabama, and Port San Antonio in Texas.

Officials will visit each of the six finalist sites and make a decision on where the headquarters will be in mid-January.
