“The University of Nebraska is proud to stand alongside our state’s elected, business and community leaders in saying Nebraska is the right home for U.S. Space Command’s headquarters. Our university is consistently ranked among the nation’s most military-friendly, and we’re recognized at the highest levels of government as a trusted partner in delivering research to protect our men and women in uniform. And Nebraska is the only site under consideration with a direct tie to the Big Ten Academic Alliance, the premier academic coalition in the country.
“In short, Nebraska has the talent, the commitment and the proven partnerships to make us a successful permanent home for U.S. Space Command. As a new Nebraskan who wore the cloth of our nation for 38 years, I can personally say this state embraces and supports our military like no other place. It would be our honor to welcome USSPACECOM members and their families to The Good Life.”
University of Nebraska President Ted Carter, VADM (Ret.), U.S. Navy; and immediate past superintendent, U.S. Naval Academy
