In a virtually held meeting last Tuesday, the Commissioners were tasked to plan how to rename the Confederate-named military bases. According to the statement, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin designated the Army as the Pentagon’s liaison to the commission. Officially, the panel created last year is named the “Commission on the Naming of Items of the Department of Defense that Commemorates the Confederate States of America or Any Person Who Served Voluntarily with the Confederate States of America.” Former President Donald Trump vetoed this bill, but Congress could override the veto for the only time during his presidency.
