Summarized by the Alliance for Fort Gordon
Published June 2, 2022
After decades of being known as “Fort Gordon,” the post will be renamed after General Dwight D. Eisenhower, if the naming commission gets its way.
Fort Gordon is one of nine installations recommended for renaming due to the Confederate history of their current names.
“I think the timing is–is– it’s never too late to do what’s right. I believe the name changing for the nine army installations is very important for our country, it’s very important to our nation, it’s very important to those who serve,” Gen. (Ret.)/Former Fort Gordon CG Jeffrey Foley said.
