No more Fort Bragg , say hello to Fort Liberty.

Updated: Feb 24, 2023

Not a lot of people know this but Fort Bragg, was named for North Carolina native Braxton Bragg, a Confederate general associated with being a slave owner and losing battles during the Civil War. Which lead to talks about a name change for the base. Well now it’s becoming reality! The name has been changed!

So moving forward ,Fort Bragg is about to get a new name. Fort Liberty is the new name for the base.

“Throughout our history liberty remains the greatest value. Ever since the nation created a standing army to provide for the common defense, that army's greatest battles have been for liberty,” retired Army Brig. Gen. Ty Seidule said.

The new name for the base was announced Tuesday afternoon at 2pm est during a virtual news conference with retired Army Brig. Gen. Ty Seidule and other members of the commission.
