U.S. Military Begins Expensive Renaming Project

Share on social

Recent news reports suggest the United States military is about to embark on an expensive renaming project to honor the wishes of the masses instead of focusing on the more important things like natural security. It’s not like all these demands are being made by people in the military, because that would make sense but instead in response to civilian out-cry.

The recent decision by the United States military to begin a multi-million dollar project of renaming Army bases and Navy ships that are connected to the Confederacy sends a strong and timely message about our national values. We can no longer afford to let one of the most hated forces in our nation’s history continue to be honored with such distinction. Because according to the left, white supremacy is our biggest threat in America. Nothing else. 

The Daily Wire reports, By 2024, Pentagon officials plan to rename military infrastructure associated with the Confederate States of America.

U.S. military officials announced plans to rename nine bases, two Navy ships, as well as more than 1,000 other military installations.

According to Task and Purpose, Pentagon spokesperson Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder told reporters, saying “Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment William LaPlante, today directed all DOD organizations to begin full implementation of the Commission on the Naming of Items of the Department of Defense, a.k.a. the Naming Commission and those recommendations.”

Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia is already dismantling a 108-year-old monument depicting Southern troops marching to war with enslaved people following.

Ryder did not disclose the project’s total cost. According to the Naming Commission’s final report, the amount is approximately $62.5 million.

Approximately $21 million of the funding would go toward renaming nine Army bases in Southern states named after Confederate figures. These bases include Forts Benning, Gordon, Bragg, Hood, Rucker, Polk, A.P. Hill, Pickett, and Lee.

It is expected that new names will be proposed for the bases, such as Fort Bragg becoming Fort Liberty. Fort Benning is reportedly to be renamed Fort Moore after Lt. Gen. Hal Moore, who served in Vietnam.

Despite not releasing new names yet, commission officials identified USS Chancellorsville and USNS Maury as the two Navy ships being renamed.

A total of $41 million will be used to construct roads, signs, buildings, and street names.

The National Defense Authorization Act mandated the removal by the Department of Defense (DOD) in October.

As a result of George Floyd’s death in May of 2020, numerous Confederate monuments were torn down. Richmond, Virginia, took down the largest Confederate monument in the U.S. in September of 2021, a statue of Lee.

American tax-payers should be nauseous over the millions of dollars being invested to tear down monuments, even those with great historical significance. Despite the fact that it reflects poorly on our society that some people cannot accept and learn from controversial history, common sense suggests that this kind of money should be used for something more productive – like military training equipment, for example. Instead, the US government is wasting resources to satisfy those who refuse to accept our country’s history. No, let’s waste millions on renaming buildings, streets, and roads, instead of investing on our soldiers. That’s what’s more important.
