Memo: No Tanks, 'Older' Aircraft at Trump's Military Parade

Military vehicles will roll through Washington on November 11 in a salute to veterans, a Pentagon memo said Friday, detailing President Donald Trump's dream of hosting a military parade.

But the event will "include a heavy air component at the end of the parade", meaning lots of airplane flyovers.

Many observers were quick to compare Trump's plans to China and North Korea, even though the parade was inspired by France's Bastille Day Parade, but Trump is apparently planning a very different kind of parade.

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

Female veterans will be highlighted, and marchers representing previous wars will wear period uniforms, including historical dress from the Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps.

It is believed that he died of cardiac arrest, according to the Udine prosecutor's office. On Instagram , Buffon wrote: "You were the best expression of an old-fashioned world".

The planned route for the parade will be from the White House to the Capitol Building, which is 1.8 miles long.

Trump's military parade is estimated to cost around $30 million in taxpayer money, according to Politico. Northern Command, which oversees USA troops in North America, will execute the parade.

Soon after that, Trump told Fox News that he would forgo the idea if it could not be done at a "reasonable cost", which might help explain the decision to integrate the new parade with one that exists.

"We're all aware in this country of the President's affection and respect for the military", Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said February 7".

Mr. Trump reportedly requested a military parade after witnessing last year's Bastille Day celebration in France, and the defense secretary acknowledged last month that the Pentagon had been "putting together some options".

"Veterans and Medal of Honor recipients should be surrounding POTUS in the reviewing area at the Capitol", the memo reads, using an acronym for president of the United States.
