Peterson Air Force Base is among 5 other military bases around the nation to house the 24th Air Force Unit which will fall under Air Force Space Command to oversee cyberspace warfare.  The Unit is in charge of global cyberwars.

The other finalists  for the 24th Air Force Unit are Barksdale Air Force Base, La., Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, Langley Air Force Base, Va., Offutt Air Force Base, Neb., and Scott AFB, Ill.  It will be interesting to see where they end up.

This would be great for the local economy in addition to the already expanding Fort Carson, which is in the process of doubling in size.
