The Pentagon released through a spokesperson that they are open to changing the names of these bases to something more inclusive and highlighting some of our nation’s heroes. The author goes through and highlights the careers of those confederates who the bases are currently named after and compares them to the nations true heroes that they will be transitioned into.
