Fort Bragg to be renamed

FORT BRAGG, N.C. (Tribune News Service) Fort Bragg was established as Camp Bragg in 1918 and named after Gen. Braxton Bragg, a North Carolina native who served during the Mexican-American War and also was a slave owner who fought for the Confederacy during the Civil War, Buccino said.

Former President Donald Trump vetoed the National Defense Authorization Act, which was overridden by Congress in January to require the changes no later than 2023 for nine installations.

Community members with ideas on who or what they’d like to see Fort Bragg named after can start submitting ideas.

Col. Scott Pence, Fort Bragg’s garrison commander, spent the week communicating with residents about how the process to rename the country’s most populated military installation came about and what’s next.

Pence started the week speaking to Col. Joe Buccino, the 18th Airborne Corps’ historian and spokesman, on a podcast about the matter.

In Monday’s edition of the 18th Airborne Corps’ podcast, Pence said the decision to rename Fort Bragg is a congressional mandate to rename all Army installations that are named after Confederate leaders.
