Pentagon Memo Reportedly Lays Out Plans for Trump Parade: Set for Veterans Day, ‘No Tanks’

We not have some more details on what President Trump‘s planned parade would look like.

CNN has obtained an apparent Pentagon memo issued this week that lays out the particulars of how it would look and when it would take place:

The memo says the parade will integrate with the annual DC Veterans Day parade and focus on the contributions of US veterans from the Revolutionary War to today “with an emphasis on the price of freedom.”

The parade will “include wheeled vehicles only, no tanks,” the memo said, adding that “consideration must be given to minimize damage to local infrastructure.”

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.

The parade is expected to be routed from the White House to the Capitol building and the Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps will be part of it.

When news of the parade spread a few weeks ago, some people weren’t so sure about the idea and there was even a bit of mockery over it.
