    Former U.S. Senator and former Nebraska Governor Ben Nelson

    “Nebraska is the right home for the new U.S. Space Command headquarters. During my time as Governor and representing Nebraska in the U.S. Senate, our great state was home to the space mission under U.S. Strategic Command. With similar missions and over 17 years of experience, there is no need to relocate Space Command elsewhere. I saw firsthand how our community came together to grow the space economy, build the workforce, and support the important mission. Military and veteran families in Nebraska find unparalleled community support. In fact, when our community needed a new VA hospital, we didn’t wait for federal resources. Our delegation passed federal legislation to allow the first VA hospital funded through a public-private partnership and raised tens of millions of dollars from the community to get the job done right.”
