Trump's Military Parade Set for Veterans Day, Will Include Heavy Air Component

U.S. troops march in a parade

Donald Trump will get to host a large military parade in Washington, but without tanks.

However, a Pentagon memo declared the parade to be excluding tanks in order to lessen the impact inflicted on roads.

It will, however, involve "a heavy air component" with military aircraft flying overhead at the end of parade, including older aircraft "as available", the memo said.

But it will not feature tanks rolling between the White House and Capitol to "minimize damage to local infrastructure", the memo says.

Will Richard Sherman's foray into free agency be brief? He is expected to have his first free agent meeting with the 49ers. The move was to save a lot of money and get the team under the salary cap.

President Donald Trump is a step closer to getting his fervently wished for military parade, which is expected to cost taxpayers between $10 and $30 million.

The Pentagon memo was issued on Thursday and sent to Gen. Joseph Dunford Jr., chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, outlining the initial guidance of how Trump's desired parade, scheduled for November 11, will look, according to CNN.

The parade route will run from the White House to the Capitol.

The parade will focus on the contributions of veterans throughout the history of the United States military, starting with the Revolutionary War, and highlight the evolution of women veterans from second world war to the present, according to the memo.

Indian SC recognizes 'living will' of terminally ill patients
The bench said the directive by a person on his wish against using life support systems has to be made in clear unambiguous terms. Reports state that the court is also considering consulting a medical board to certify whether the patient in coma is incurable.

Trump decided he wanted a military parade in Washington after he attended France's Bastille Day celebration in the center of Paris last July.

"Members of Congress from both parties have been critical of the idea of a military parade, questioning its cost and necessity."

"We have a great country and we should be celebrating our country", he told Fox News in a recent interview.

The organizers call for the parade to display the changing role of women in the military, "from separate formations in World War II to today's integrated formations". There are also plans for soldiers to wear period uniforms dating back to the Revolutionary War.

The memo was sent Thursday to the Joint Chiefs of Staff, CNN reported.
