The Georgia Institute of Technology has its first members of the U.S. Space Force.

Two officers in Georgia Tech's Air Force ROTC detachment have transferred to the newest military branch, along with a Ph.D. student in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs.

Capt. Chloe Babcock, an instructor in Georgia Tech’s Air Force ROTC Detachment 165 and a master’s student in the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, was the first Georgia Tech graduate student to transfer to the Space Force, in September.

Major Brian Stewart, a Ph.D. student in the Nunn School, followed a month later.

Additionally, three ROTC cadets from Georgia Tech have been commissioned into the Air Force with plans to transfer to the Space Force this year. Melody Marshall Wolfson, AE 2020, and John Willingham, AE 2021, commissioned into the Air Force after graduation and joined the Space Force in May. Joshua Hammonds, ME 2020, is commissioned into the Air Force and is scheduled to join the Space Force in November.

“I’m looking forward to using the skills and education I have cultivated here to continue Georgia Tech’s legacy of outstanding service to the military and the nation," Hammonds said.
