Vice President Kamala Harris plans to visit Vandenberg Space Force Base (VSFB) on Monday.
The office of the Vice President released a notice Thursday morning on the impending travel to the Lompoc area.
Vice President Harris plans to meet with the men and women of the United States Space Force and United States Space Command. "She will receive briefings on their work advancing our national security and will deliver remarks," the press release states.
Previously named Vandenberg Air Force Base, VSFB is a space launch base launching spacecraft from the Western Range and also performing missile testing. The United States Space Force's Space Launch Delta 30 serves as the host delta for the base.
In addition to its military space launch mission, VSFB also performs space launches for civil and commercial space entities, such as NASA and SpaceX.
Last week, edhat reported that VSFB was selected by the Department of the Air Force as one of six candidate locations for U.S. Space Force’s Space Training and Readiness Command Headquarters (STARCOM).
