  1. What a waste of time and money. Am I to infer from this article that if the impact of the financial cost of renaming a military installation is deemed to be very high that the name may not change?

  2. Ty Seidule is a crack pot and his General rank is a joke. His wokeness has no bounds.

    Among the highlights of his like is the character assassination of Robert E Lee.

    Those that know me know if I am not a Lee fan, but you can’t attack the man’s good character.

    If this clown is representative of the committee, God help us.

  3. What a horrible waste of money. People are homeless, murders every night, Ukraine is being destroyed, people cannot afford gas to get to work, little children go to school with no coats, hats or gloves, older Americans on a fixed income, etc. and we want to spend trillions of dollars to rename military bases. I long for the old days when there wasn’t a political motivation for EVERYTHING that is done. Let’s use our common sense and, for one time, do the right thing and just say NO.

  4. Wasteful government money. If you did a poll on the street anywhere most people never pay any attention to the names given to buildings, streets or installations. So many better ways to spend taxpayer money.

  5. Obvious Poor planning here.
    At least half a dozen of these base name changes be shelved to allow time for the re-dedication that will be required when the first of the Built Back Better military’s up and coming transgender officers achieves rank of 4 star general.
    With the speed that the new transgender officers are being fast tracked by the woke pentagon it should only take a year or two at the most anyway.

  6. I’m against renaming anything..it’s a waste of time and money and where does it stop? Secondly, they renamed Clark’s Hill but it will always be Clark’s Hill to me..same with Fort Gordon…Lastly? You don’t name military installations after non military people..jmho…

  7. THis is the stupidest boondoggle of the year!! I am New Jersey born, North Georgia grad and retired Colonel with 27 years active and a master parachutist. These Southern generals served the people of their states with honor, risk of life as well as continued service to their states and their citizens. These Army posts were named in the WWII era when an entire patriotic nation prepared for war. All of those who served and are serving know these famous installation names. This woke, rewrite of history effort led by a small percentage of “citizens”, all left wing, hate America folks, are changing history! The folks behind this NEVER SERVED!! A TERRIBLE WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY!! How about Fort Al Sharpton or Fort Jesse Jackson, Fort John Kerry or Ft “Danang Dick” Blumenthal, our senator who lied about his non-existent Vietnam service??? This country is in deep trouble, “led” by an old man who is being led by the nose by both the small mindedvociferous left wing abetted by a left wing press, media and social networks!! HELP!! Vote IN NOVEMBER!!

  8. Not only is there the renaming of the posts. All the street names and facility names will be redone as well if they have a Confderate’s name.

    Let’s keep in mind that Perdue, who is running for governor and sat on the Senate Armed Services Committee where this was voted on, did not vote against it. Senator Tom Cotton was the onl ”nay” vote.
