Military parade will be held on the instruction of President Donald Trump who had directed Pentagon to hold a large-scale military parade to contributions of veterans throughout the history of the U.S. military, starting from the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812 to today.
However, a Pentagon memo declared the parade to be excluding tanks in order to lessen the impact inflicted on roads.
The event should include a "heavy air component", the memo continued, but tanks won't be permitted due to their potential to wreck city streets.
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". Such parades in other countries are usually staged to celebrate victories in battle or showcase military might.
President Donald Trump's requested military parade will likely take place on Veterans Day and stretch between the U.S. Capitol and the White House, a Pentagon memo from this week shows.
The route will start at the White House and finish at the Capitol.
President Donald Trump's wish for a military parade in Washington on Veterans Day has been granted.
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".
As planning continues, the memo gave no more details on the type of weaponry to be featured in the parade.
Trump praised the French display months later when he and Macron met in NY, saying: "We're going to have to try and top it". "I think it's great for our country in terms of being a cheerleader and the spirit".
The Joint Staff will be responsible for planning the parade and Northern Command, which oversees US troops in North America, will be responsible for executing it, according to the memo, which was signed by US Navy Capt. Hallock Mohler Jr., the executive secretary for the office of the secretary of defense.
The preliminary plan calls for Trump to be surrounded by Medal of Honor recipients and veterans in a viewing area.
