11 March, 2018, 03:02
The Pentagon appears ready to fulfill President Donald Trump's dream of carrying out a military parade in Washington D.C., according to a guidance memo from the Office of the Secretary of Defense obtained by NBC News on Friday. Plans also outlined the appearance of a Fife and Drum unit as well as air components.
While the Pentagon memo did not include a cost estimate, the White House budget director recently told Congress taxpayers can expect to fork over $10 million and $30 million. There won't be any tanks in consideration of Washington's roadways, but the plan calls for wheeled military vehicles to roll through the streets. Northern Command, which oversees USA troops in North America, will execute the parade.
"The memo says the parade will integrate with the annual DC Veterans Day parade and focus on the contributions of U.S. veterans from the Revolutionary War to today 'with an emphasis on the price of freedom, '" CNN reported.
The parade is being planned for Veterans Day on November 11, although heavy tanks are prohibited from the procession since they might destroy the streets of Washington, D.C. "We have a great country and we should be celebrating our country", he told Fox News Channel in a recent interview.
The letter asked for the inclusion of the Medal of Honor Association, as well as Veterans Service Organizations, and to have veterans and Medal of Honor recipients standing around President Trump at the Capitol.
President Donald Trump has requested a military parade, similar to the one he attended on Bastille Day last summer in France (pictured here), likely to be held in Washington, D.C. this fall.
Military parades are also a highlight of the calendar in Moscow and Pyongyang but are rare in the United States, where displays of patriotism usually take the form of flag-waving, fireworks and grilled hot dogs.
