WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio Media will have the opportunity to interview the first local recruit from the 338th Recruiting Squadron to join Space Force, on Thursday, March 18 at the National Museum of the United States Air Force at 11:00 a.m.

Located in front of the GPS Exhibit in the fourth hanger at the NMUSAF, Trevor Bingle-Dewitt, and recruiter, Tech. Sgt. Anthony Addison, will speak on the excitement of it all and what is next on this journey.  

Dewitt is one of many projected to join the Space Force, as there are about 550 Guardians projected to join this fiscal year. Once enlisted, Guardians have the opportunity to join different career fields that include space systems operations, intel and cyber specialties.

Currently, Dewitt is interested in working on electrical systems, whereas Space Force provides that opportunity, as well as a way for him to also work toward a degree in Computer Programming.

Today there are about 4,300 Guardians in the Space Force.


NOTE FOR MEDIA: Media interested in covering this event are asked to RSVP to Kimberly Gaither at (937) 257-0082 no later than 9:00 a.m. on March 18.

Media should arrive at the museum no later than 10:30 a.m., as the interview will begin at 11:00 a.m.  A parking map is attached and media will enter through Door 13.

Please be advised that facial coverings are required within the museum.
