U.S. military parade to be held on Veterans Day

Pentagon issues memo with guidance for Trump's military parade

Potential details for President Donald Trump's requested military parade were revealed Friday - and tanks are not included.

His original vision for the parade, in which soldiers would march down boulevards alongside tanks, was expected to cost between $10 million and $30 million, White House budget director Mick Mulvaney said last month.

President Donald Trump may actually get his military parade after all - sort of.

The memo also confirmed the course of the parade to be from the White House to the Capital and is to have a "heavy air component at the end of the parade".

The parade will not include tanks but only wheeled vehicles, the memo stated. "Members of Congress from both parties have been critical of the idea of a military parade, questioning its cost and necessity". "America is the most powerful country in all of human history; you don't need to show it off". The last time the U.S. saw such a parade was in the year 1991, when Saddam Hussein's Iraqi forces were thrown out of Kuwait in the Gulf War. The route will be from the White House to the U.S. Capitol Building.

The letter, dated Thursday and addressed to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, gives guidance for planning "a military-themed Veteran's Day Parade" in Washington on November 11.

Northern Command, which oversees USA troops in North America, will execute the parade. In addition to military equipment, the parade will include pageantry, with veterans dressed in period uniforms.

The memo, dated Thursday, indicated "a list of planning considerations" from Secretary of Defense James Mattis. Trump's parade will integrate with the DC Veterans Day parade and Medal of Honor recipients will reportedly surround the president in the Capitol's viewing area.

Trump was delighted by France's Bastille Day celebration during a visit to Paris last July, and praised the parade months later, saying, "We're going to have to try and top it".

But it won't resemble the Bastille Day celebration in France that Trump had leaned on for inspiration. We've been putting together some options.
