Must Read

The recent demand from the Marine Corps commandant for his subordinates to remove all Confederate-related paraphernalia from Marine bases has sparked a heated debate. The Army decided to share their opinion on the debate, with a spokesperson stating that no Army street or installation named after a Confederate general or affiliate will be changed. There are ten Army installations currently named after Confederate commanders, including Fort Bragg and Fort Lee. Navy ships have also been named after commanders or Civil War battles. The Army public affairs office also commented that “the Army has a tradition of naming installations and streets after historical figures of military significance, including former Union and Confederate general officers.”
