Doesn't matter if you agree with this move or not - it's been directed and it's happening. What are your suggestions for renaming the following bases?

- Fort Bragg
- Fort Rucker
- Fort Benning
- Fort Gordon
- Fort Hood
- Fort Polk
- Fort A.P. Hill
- Fort Belvoir
- Fort Lee
- Fort Pickett

I have a suggestion, leave well enough alone! You can't erase history no matter how hard you try.

Bingo! All of this communist indoctrination renaming crap is helping to sow decision and divison into the US military and society at large. Thank you Congress for helping to weaken our already depleted military.

SPC Tanya Beaver - You wouldn’t know treason if it hit you in the head SPC. Educate yourself before you embarrass yourself further.

You’re right, we should recognize history. I want to rename one of the bases, Fort Benedict Arnold. He was a great general before he betrayed his country, just like all the other men on this list.

It's humorous to me about how the big Army (and the left side) always tries to change the names of something we've always had & used....
Like the now politically correct term of "DFAC or dining facility".
And yet - we still, and probably will always call it the "Chow Hall"!!!
To me, Ft Bragg has a special place in my heart, soul & memory - and it will always be Bragg, no matter how many different politically-correct left side terms they decide to rename it!

SSgt Carroll Straus - Its not glorification. Its amendments to move on and get the country rebuilt and back together as soon as possible. North did not get the big victory it talks of. South was more than happy/able/willing to engage in guerilla warfare. War needed to end NOW by whatever means.

Then -

Remember that Lincoln is the first Republican. He was the third party candidate. Now he's dead and there's a lot of politicians wanting to go back to the way it was before the election. Trust me - they are worried about more important things than a statue. Executions for treason would likewise, be an idea that got quashed. What was done was not the best but sadly, it was done with the best tools available at the time. Always difficult to look at 1860's events with 2023 eyes.

I always call it the mess hall. In Virginia folks are not allowed to place confederate flags for more that a year. so they replace the flag every year.

I think they should name them after Medal of Honor recipients.

WHY? Why not leave them as they are? To me changing the names to placate a few is like the timeout cards. Pretty sissified!
