Original Message t will cost approximately $6,374,230 to rename all of Fort Bragg's assets to Fort Liberty, according to a new report given to Congress on Monday.

The report comes from the Naming Commission which was previously tasked with coming up with recommendations for removing Confederate influence from the United States military.

The group released nine suggested new names for Army bases back in May. In that report, Fort Liberty was recommended as the new name of Fort Bragg.

Fort Bragg is named after Confederate Army Officer Braxton Bragg, who is widely considered one of the worst generals of the Civil War. He lost most of the battles he was involved in and many historians consider him responsible in part for the Confederacy's ultimate defeat.

This new report also shows that the Naming Commission considered several other names as possible replacements for Fort Bragg. The commission considered names to honor 1LT Vernon Baker, MSG Roy Benavidez, SSG Félix M. Conde-Falcón, LTG James Gavin, MSG Gary Gordon & SFC Randall Shughart, CPL Rodolfo Hernández, COL Robert Howard, GEN Colin Powell, GEN Matthew Ridgway and GEN Roscoe Robinson, Jr.

If we're going to spend over 6 million dollars to rename the post, we might as well just go ahead and call it Fort Pantywaist and dress everybody in fucking rainbow uniforms with pink berets.
