Gen. David Berger, the Marine Corps commandant, has ordered the removal of all Confederate symbols and memorabilia from the service’s installations worldwide.
Military.com reported that Berger’s directive, issued last month, would be carried out immediately – although little detail has been offered so far.
Details are to be forthcoming in service-wide Maradmin announcements. The order to remove politically controversial Confederate symbols, viewed by Military.com, was reportedly included in a wider memo that also called for recruiting more women into combat roles and an expansion of maternity leave.
