Marines do not want to have anything to do with the Confederation and therefore the commandant ordered to remove all the Confederate symbols
Marine Corps Commandant Gen. David Berger ordered that all signs of marine involvement in the Confederation be erased. On Wednesday, his spokesman confirmed this information on his twitter.
“Direct the removal of all Confederate-related paraphernalia from Marine CorpsInstallations,” posted Military Analyst B. A. Friedman on Twitter.
i know that some ppl will be mad about this but in fairness we had a whole war some years ago regarding what flag goes where and we decided this one goes in the fucking trash, so. pic.twitter.com/FPRQv3iCfb— matthew. ???????? (@iAmTheWarax) February 27, 2020
Task & Purpose, referring to the words of Berger’s spokesman reported that this directive has already been sent to senior management.
“Last week, the Commandant of the Marine Corps directed specific tasks be reviewed or addressed by Headquarters Marine Corps staff,” Maj. Eric Flanagan said in an email. “Many of the tasks were published on Twitter Friday. Other tasks not published previously are mostly administrative matters.”
To date, it is not known exactly when the Marine Corps is going to fulfill this order. Additional information will be announced on Friday.
