OUR MISSION:
Congressional Commission providing naming, renaming, and removal recommendations to Congress for all Department of Defense items that commemorate the Confederate States of America or any person who served voluntarily with the Confederate States of America.

The Commission is submitting its Final Report to Congress in three parts. Part I, which recommends new names for nine Army bases, was provided to Congress on August 8, 2022. Part II will address assets on the U.S. Military Academy and the U.S. Naval Academy. Part III will address all Department of Defense assets not covered in the first two parts. The two final parts will be submitted to Congress no later than October 1, 2022.

The Naming Commission has the important role of recommending names that exemplify our U.S. military and national values. Through numerous community engagements and thousands of direct submissions via our website, we gained tremendous feedback and insight to help ensure the best names are recommended to Congress.
