I was pleased to see that the commission on renaming military installation named after Confederates has recommended that Fort Benning be renamed Fort Moore after Hal Moore and his wife Julia. Hal Moore commanded the 1st of the 7th Cav of the 1s Air Cavalry Division at the Battle of Ia Drang in 1965. He retired highly decorated as a LTG. His wife was very active in seeing to the families of deceased Army soldiers.
