“The Force” is strong with the Department of Defense Facebook/U.S. Department of Defense

The Defense Department is jumping on the “Star Wars” bandwagon. In a series of new images posted late Thursday, the DoD put the spotlight on the service branches with the tagline “you have your force, we have ours.”

The graphics promote Defense Secretary Ash Carter’s “Force of the Future” initiative to attract and foster the best talent to the Pentagon.

The U.S. Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force were all featured in the Facebook photo set.

Facebook commenters were quick to point out that the Coast Guard was left out of the photo parade, to which the DoD social media team replied, “We are all part of the same Alliance… just different departments. When it comes to battling the Dark Side, we definitely have common goals.”
