This is pathetic.
Under the direction of President Biden, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin just did the unthinkable and has now signed off on a decision to remove “all names, symbols, displays, monuments, and paraphernalia that honor or commemorate the Confederacy,” at all U.S. military facilities.
According to Fox News, Austin wrote, “The installations and facilities that our Department operates are more than vital national security assets. They are also powerful public symbols of our military, and of course, they are the places where our Service members and their families work and live. The names of these installations and facilities should inspire all those who call them home, fully reflect the history and the values of the United States, and commemorate the best of the republic that we are all sworn to protect.”
Starting on Dec. 18, 2022, the Defense Department will start renaming assets across the United States including streets and buildings.
Nine military base will undergo a name change. Here are the new name changes:
Alabama: Fort Rucker will now be named Fort Novosel.
Georgia: Fort Benning will be changed to Fort Moore and and Fort Gordon will now be Fort Eisenhower.
Louisiana: Fort Polk will now be Fort Johnson.
North Carolina: Fort Bragg will now be Fort Liberty.
Texas: Fort Hood will be changed to Fort Cavazos.
Virginia: Fort Lee will be Fort Gregg-Adams, Fort Picket will be Fort Barfoot, and Fort A.P. Hill will now be Fort Walker.
They will also rename two Navy ships however the new names have not been revealed yet.
These new name changes will cost more than 60 million dollars for the American taxpayers. President Biden and the Democrats’ new decision has enraged many Americans.
