U.S. Space Force unveils Guardian Spirit handbook

By Secretary of the Air Force Public Affairs

The U.S. Space Force released the Guardian Spirit handbook that provides guidance to Guardians on how to live the four Guardian values - Character, Connection, Commitment, Courage - in daily life.

This document operationalizes how Space Force members can espouse the service’s second line of effort, “Amplify the Guardian Spirit.”

The Guardian Spirit is organized by four chapters dedicated to each of the core values and includes a description, definition, and context for each value. It also emphasizes the Guardian Commitment “I will” statements for Team Members and Leaders, which are personalized and action-oriented expressions of the Guardian values.

The handbook aims to set the foundation for Guardians to advance the five aspirational objectives listed in the Guardian Ideal, the Space Force’s foundational talent management document: Connect in a Collaborative Environment, Lead Digital Enablement, Generate and Engage Talent, Develop and Employ Talent, and Integrate Resiliency.
