The Battle that changed the war in vietnam

In January 2021, a Federal law was passed requiring the renaming of military bases named for Confederates. Please join our campaign to rename Fort Benning in honor of Lt General Hal and Julie Moore.

Renaming Fort Benning for LTG Hal and Julie Moore simultaneously honors the traditional courageous performance of one of the Vietnam War’s most honored leaders as well as acknowledges Julie Moore for her leadership on the home front and focus on the Army family across their 32 year career. This recognizes and honors the importance and contribution of the “command team” and the military family towards the army mission and caring for soldiers,
