Pentagon Begins Scrubbing Confederate Names from Military Assets

There is now a process that has begun across the military that will not sit well with some Americans.

A part of our history is about to be erased.

The names of individuals that have been in place for years, decades, and sometimes centuries, are about to be removed.

The Department of Defense has announced the scrubbing of confederate names from all military assets.

Erase It

The Confederacy, whether people like it or not, is part of this country’s history.

I am of the belief that history should be in our face, debates, and learned from, not erased and forgotten.

If there is one thing that history has taught us time and again, it is that if you ignore it, it will repeat itself.

All DOD assets have one full year to remove the names linked to the Confederacy, with all plans being completed by January 1, 2024.

West Point has already started, removing all traces of General Robert E. Lee, who served at West Point prior to serving in the Confederacy.

One symbol that was not removed was the Yin-Yang symbol of the 29th Infantry. That symbol was chosen because there were members who served in both the Union and Confederate armies prior to the end of the Civil War.

The new names chosen will be “rooted in their local communities and that honor American heroes whose valor, courage, and patriotism exemplify the very best of the U.S. military,” according to the Pentagon.

Nobody here is pretending that every moment of country’s history is pleasant, but they should never be erased, and that is what is happening.

The names and monuments will be stuffed into some basement never to be seen again. We do not learn from history this way; we only doom ourselves to repeat it.
