US Defense Secretary issues statement on Progress of Naming Commission

U.S. Department of Defense

“I am pleased to see the Naming Commission’s progress as mandated by Congress in the FY 2021 National Defense Authorization Act. Today’s announcement highlights the Commission’s efforts to propose nine new installation names that reflect the courage, values, sacrifices, and diversity of our military men and women. I thank the members of the Commission for their important, collaborative work with base commanders, local community leaders, Soldiers, and military families. And I look forward to seeing their complete report later this year.”
