Naming Commission welcomes public input

Washington, D.C. – The commission tasked to provide Congress recommendations for changing names of military bases and other assets that commemorate the Confederacy is now accepting comments from the American public at www.thenamingcommission.gov.

Formed earlier this year, as mandated in the William M. (Mac) Thornberry National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021, the commission is establishing the criteria to rename or remove "names, symbols, displays, monuments and paraphernalia" that commemorate the Confederacy. In addition, the commission will review any "base, installation, street, building, facility, aircraft, ship, plane, weapon, equipment or any other property owned or controlled by the Department of Defense."
