SEN. JAMES LANKFORD: I do, actually. I think the right way to do this is to be able to have a study to look where the name came from, to take a serious look at it, and be able to transition. There are a lot of great military leaders around the country that are modern leaders, that we can honor and continue to put names forward.
I see it like schools. Every school has a name. You want those children in that school to be able to learn about the person that school is named after. You would have that on a military base as well. So, if you have a military base that is named after someone that actually rebelled against the United States government, then you would want to be able to go back and look at that name. That should be a pretty basic principle.
