President Trump's Military Parade Will Not Go Full Authoritarian
Mar 11, 2018, 01:20
However, the parade will not include tanks as authorities do not want to leave the roads damaged, according to a Pentagonmemo released Friday, March 9.
The memo, with Thursday's date, says its goal is to "provide initial guidance for the planning and execution" of a procession that would run from the White House to the Capitol and integrate with the city's annual Veterans Day parade.
"Consideration must be given to minimise damage to local infrastructure", the memo notes, adding that there will be "wheeled vehicles only".
It's scheduled for Veterans Day. It will close with a "heavy air component", which officials hope will include older planes.
"The goal of this memorandum is to provide initial guidance for the planning and execution of a military-themed Veteran's Day Parade in Washington, D.C. on November 11, 2018", the office of Defense Secretary James Mattis wrote in a memo published Friday. The White House budget director recently told Congress the cost to taxpayers could be between $10m and $30m. 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.

The last major parade in Washington was in 1991 after the Gulf War, when missiles and tanks moved through the streets of the capital. "But the generals would love to do it, I can tell you, and so would I", Trump told Fox News in February.

The parade will also highlight the evolving role of women in the military.
