DOD to change names of nine Army installations by 2024

Defense Travel Management Office

In January 2023, Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment William A. LaPlante directed all Department of Defense organizations to begin full implementation of the DOD Naming Commission recommendations. This directive includes the renaming of nine Army installations by January 1, 2024.

DTMO’s website content will be updated to reflect the new names on a similar timeline, with all content updates completed by January 1, 2024.

The affected Army installations will undergo official Naming Ceremonies and will retain their former names until those Ceremonies are held and the Secretary of the Army officially approves each change. To date two installations have been officially renamed. The remaining seven will be renamed by the January 1, 2024 deadline.

In the interim, DTMO’s website and other content may reflect one or other of the names, and an installation may appear on DTMO’s website under the new name even though it has not yet been officially renamed.

If searching for specific information on any of these installations in DTMO content, please search both names to be certain that you find all relevant information.

Affected Army installations:
Current Name Location Former Name
Fort Barfoot Virginia Fort Pickett
Fort Novosel Alabama Fort Rucker
Current Name Location Will Be Renamed
Fort Benning Georgia Fort Moore
Fort Bragg North Carolina Fort Liberty
Fort Gordon Georgia Fort Eisenhower
Fort A.P. Hill Virginia Fort Walker
Fort Hood Texas Fort Cavazos
Fort Lee Virginia Fort Gregg-Adams
Fort Polk Louisiana Fort Johnson
