No, I came out of Fort Benning and I am aware of the history and the reasoning behind it. They were Americans before they broke away and they were Americans again after the Civil War ended and the stood and fought for their principles like the Founding Fathers and that deserves a measure of respect even if we disagree with their principles. In the 150+ years since, the bases have created their own reputations and made their own names for themselves with degrees of honor and prestige. Just like with Harvard and Yale. Would the Ivy league Universities change their name for the same purpose? It is already reported that both Georgetown and Yale would have to change their names.
