# ADM (Ret.) James O. Ellis, Jr., U.S. Navy, former Commander of U.S. Strategic Command

“In 2002, we merged the first U.S. Space Command with U.S. Strategic Command in Omaha because of the natural synergies between space operations and all of the strategic roles then resident in USSTRATCOM. Many of those synergies still exist and I believe co-location of these two important commands would make a great deal of sense, especially given the pro-active ability of the region to craft public-private partnerships and national security research support and the always-welcoming spirit of the people of Nebraska.”
