I have given some thought on new names for the bases named after Confederate generals:
1. Fort Lee in Virginia is home to the Quartermaster Corps. An obvious choice would be to name it Ulysses S. Grant. Another alternative would be to name it after Nathanael Greene, a Quartermaster General from the American Revolution.
2. Fort Hood in Texas is home to the 1st Cavalry Division and the 4th Infantry Division (Mechanized). I think we could name it after General George S. Patton, Jr.
3. Fort Gordon in Georgia is the home of the Signal Corps. An obvious choice is Paul Revere of 'one if by land and two if by sea fame'.
4. Fort Bragg in North Carolina is where the 82d Airborne Division is stationed. I recommend changing the name to Matthew B. Ridgway from WWII fame. He was a former commander.
5. Fort A.P. Hill in Virginia is now the home for the Training and Maneuver Center. I would like to see this post named after Molly Pitcher (real name Mary Ludwig Hays McCauley), a revolutionary War heroine or Catherine Kate Barry – “Heroine of the Battle of Cowpens”.
6. Fort Rucker in Alabama is the home of Army Aviation. We could name it after Benjamin O. Davis, Jr. was the first African-American general officer in the US Air Force. During World War II, Davis was commander of the 99th Fighter Squadron and 332nd Fighter Group as part of the Army Aviation Corps. We could also name it aftet his father, Benjamin O. Davis, Sr., the first African-American general in the US Army.
For the rest of the bases, (Camp Beauregard and Fort Polk in LA., Fort Benning in Ga., and Fort Pickett in VA.) ther are many options such as Omar Bradley, Mark W. Clark, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Douglas MacArthur, and George Marshall. Take your pick.
Any other ideas?
