Trump's military parade planned for Veterans Day - without tanks
11 March, 2018, 01:51
A memo released Friday by the Pentagon outlines plans for a military parade set for November 11 (Veterans Day 2018) that will include service members from different branches of the us military.
In a Pentagon memo released to CNN on Friday, the Department of Defense is now moving forward with a plan of a parade.
The parade will also include a "heavy air component, " the memo said, with military planes flying overhead at the end of the parade.
While sketching out guidelines for the parade, the memo further announced it would "include wheeled vehicles only, no tanks - consideration must be given to minimise damage to local infrastructure".
The idea for a parade appears to have been rekindled when the president visited Paris for Bastille Day in July and made no secret of his awe for the pomp and ceremony of the occasion.
The memo, signed by Navy Capt. Hallock Mohler, executive secretary for the Office of the Secretary of Defense, confirms the parade is set to take place on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
The parade will focus on the contributions of veterans throughout the history of the USA military, starting with the Revolutionary War, and highlight the evolution of women veterans from second world war to the present, according to the memo.
Trump's military parade is estimated to cost around $30 million in taxpayer money, according to Politico.
The parade is expected to include participants dressed in period uniforms and will also "highlight the evolution of women veterans", the memo said, "from separate formations in World War II to today's integrated formations". First reports of plans for a parade came out last month when The Washington Postreported that Trump had met with high-ranking officials and told them he wanted a parade "like the one in France". Northern Command, which oversees US troops in North America, will execute the parade.
The commander in chief will watch from a reviewing stand by the Capitol surrounded by veterans and Medal of Honor recipients. "It was two hours on the button, and it was military might, and I think a tremendous thing for France and for the spirit of France", Trump said in September.
