National Guard Units in 7 States (INCLUDING ALABAMA) Have Held onto Confederate Streamers Despite a Deadline to Turn Them In
The Army had collected 384 of 491 streamers as of the Sept. 1 deadline,
according to a spokesperson with the Army's Human Resources Command.
That was part of an effort mandated by Congress to strip tributes to the
Confederacy from military property, including the names of major bases.
States that sent all streamers were Kentucky, Missouri, North Carolina
and Texas. But units in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Maryland,
Mississippi, South Carolina and West Virginia have yet to surrender
Confederate Flag (since removed)
