Default Rename military bases?

I don't think this will happen under the current administration but under a Democrat, it could.

I spent time at Ft.Benning, Ft. Bragg, Ft. Polk, and even Camp Beauregard and renaming them would tick off more than Southerners, IMO.

So you don't think our boys want to be stationed at and train at Fort Che Guevara?

I'm amazed at who those oppositional to these names revere as heroes

This is the direction everything is going right now. Once I heard about the USS Gabrielle Giffords, I knew it was just the beginning.

Had not heard about this one. But back in the spring I was talking with two high school classmates (both Sergeant Majors) about a couple bases closing. We were trying to get on some military base hunts , thus the insight. It appears more military bases will close based on current technology, out sourcing and fast coming technologies before this name change stuff happens. Military Base closings have been ongoing since President Reagan but got accelerated with President Bush...If memory serves me correctly! Some dang good hunting grounds around the nation.

Base closings were initiated by Mr. Clinton I thought?

I stand corrected, the doctrine of base realignment & closures was initiated in 1988. There have been 5 rounds since then

Good deal. Been forever. It kills community's when bases close but tax payer dollars are on the line. My parents lost theirs but now go to a navy base 30 minutes further away.

Yep, Lubbock lost Reese AFB during the Clinton admin. It was a hit to the local economy, but it survived. The base is now used as a Jr College extension campus and research facility. Most importantly they saved the golf course . (dang airmen!)
