Please promote this website (it is live now)  and ensure we get as many recommendations as possible for Fort Bragg for MSGT Roy Benavidez and for Fort Hood for either General Richard Cavazos or other recommendations, and recommendations for other bases.   The American GI Forum Community must be heard and here is an opportunity to hear our voice.  Thanks and Best Wishes!
The Naming Commission has the important role of recommending names that exemplify our U.S. military and national values. We are determined to gain feedback and insight from every concerned citizen to ensure the best names are recommended. To accomplish this monumental task, we are engaging with local, city, state and federal leaders and communities. We also encourage all interested citizens to submit naming recommendations.

Nine Army posts named after Confederate officers are being considered:

  • Fort A.P. Hill, Virginia

  • Fort Benning, Georgia

  • Fort Bragg, North Carolina

  • Fort Gordon, Georgia

  • Fort Hood, Texas

  • Fort Lee, Virginia

  • Fort Pickett, Virginia

  • Fort Polk, Louisiana

  • Fort Rucker, Alabama

We are also deliberating the inclusion of recommendations for the Army’s Fort Belvoir in Virginia, which carries the name of a former slave plantation.

While there are yet other installations with names linked to the Confederacy, the Commission is empowered to make recommendations only for Department of Defense assets. This means the Commission cannot consider new names for National Guard installations – for example, Camp Beauregard, Louisiana and Camp Maxey, Texas – which fall under the operational control of their respective state governments.

Along with these installations, two ships are being considered for renaming: the USNS Maury and the USS Chancellorsville.
