Tom Rogan: Army bases aren't defined by their Confederate namesakes
Updated: Jun 17
President Trump on Wednesday ruled out renaming U.S. Army bases such as Fort Bragg, Fort Benning, and Fort Hood, which are named after Confederate generals. Trumps says this because those bases have a...history of Winning, Victory, and Freedom. The United States of America trained and deployed our HEROES on these Hallowed Grounds, and won two World Wars. Therefore, my Administration will not even consider the renaming of these Magnificent and Fabled Military Installations...
Although I wish the president would show more sensitivity for the legitimate moral debate here, I'm in broad agreement. These bases are no longer defined by those they were named after.
