Gen. Mark Milley Calls for ‘Hard Look’ at Renaming Bases Honoring Confederates

Gen. Mark A. MilleyThe top military official in the United States called on Thursday for taking “a hard look” at changing the names of Army bases honoring Confederate officers who had fought against the Union during the Civil War, disagreeing with President Trump and further exposing a divide between the military and the president.

Gen. Mark A. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Mr. Trump’s senior military adviser, told a House hearing that the base names had become an issue of “divisiveness.”

Ten Army bases that honor Confederate generals who fought to defend the slaveholding South have been the focus of a growing movement for change.

“There is no place in our armed forces for manifestations or symbols of racism, bias or discrimination,” General Milley said.
