Trump's Military Parade Is Set For Veterans Day

Trump’s military parade won’t have this crucial element memo

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

There would also be "a heavy air component at the end of the parade, to include older aircraft as available", according to the memo.

CNN saw a Pentagon memo outlining plans for the demonstration, and apparently it will include "wheeled vehicles only" and no tanks.

The parade Trump was referring to is the Bastille Day parade he attended previous year in Paris.

The parade, the first major one in the United States capital since 1991, will take place on November 11 in a salute to veterans, according to a Pentagon planning memo.

The parade will focus on the contributions of American veterans throughout the history of the USA military, starting with the Revolutionary War, and highlight the evolution of women veterans from World War II to the present, according to the memo.

Federal Bureau of Investigation involved in NC police officer beating a black man
The FBI is investigating a North Carolina police officer for the bloody beating of a black man on foot he accused of jaywalking. The investigation also found that Hickman had engaged in "rude and discourteous behavior" on at least four other occasions.

"We'll see if we can do it at a reasonable cost, and if we can't, we won't do it". It has been estimated that a major military parade, would cost anywhere from $10 to $30 million.

There will be no tanks at America's military parade, however - likely a disappointment to Trump who was enamored by the heavy armor that rumbled through the streets of Paris last July when he watched France's Bastille Day celebration.

The Joint Staff will reportedly oversee the planning of the procession, while Northern Command, which oversees USA troops in North America, will carry it out.

"But the generals would love to do it, I can tell you, and so would I", Trump told Fox News last month.

Trump should be surrounded in the reviewing area at the Capitol by veterans and Medal of Honor recipients, the Pentagon memo said.

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". "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.
