WASHINGTON — Chief Master Sgt. Roger Towberman will serve as the first senior enlist­ed advi­sor of the U.S. Space Force, Chief of Space Operations Gen. John Raymond announced Feb. 13.

Towberman last year was named the senior enlist­ed leader of U.S. Space Command. He will be dual-hatted as the top enlist­ed advi­sor at both U.S. Space Command and the U.S. Space Force.

Towberman will advise the Space Force’s enlist­ed corps and will serve as a per­son­al advi­sor to the Chief of Space Operations and the Secretary of the Air Force on issues like the wel­fare, readi­ness and morale of the force.

The U.S. Space Force, which was cre­at­ed on Dec. 20, has to devel­op mil­i­tary space pro­fes­sion­als, acquire mil­i­tary space sys­tems, refine mil­i­tary doc­trine for space power and orga­nize space forces for use by com­bat­ant com­mands.

“There is a lot of work to do and we are pulling togeth­er elite talent to take it on,” Towberman said in a state­ment.

Towberman joined the U.S. Air Force in 1990. Before being named the top enlist­ed leader at U.S. Space Command, he served in mil­i­tary intel­li­gence assign­ments at the 480th Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Wing, Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia; the 25th Air Force, Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas; and Air Force Space Command at Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado.
