Pentagon memo provides details on Trump's military parade: No tanks

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

A new memo from the Pentagon shows that the parade is expected to happen on Veterans Day, in conjunction with the annual Veterans Day parade on November 11, in Washington, D.C.

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

The event will "include a heavy air component at the end of the parade", the memo said, meaning lots of airplane flyovers. Officials said they are anxious about the possible damage that non-wheeled vehicles could infict upon Washington streets.

Political analyst and writer Patrick Gathara said such a dialogue is still needed despite Friday's meeting. The truce comes months after Kenyans went to two violent elections in the last quarter of 2017.

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 memo says the parade will integrate with the annual DC Veterans Day parade and focus on the contributions of United States veterans from the Revolutionary War to today 'with an emphasis on the price of freedom, '" CNN reported.

"This parade will focus on the contributions of our veterans throughout the history of the us military, starting from the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812 to today, with an emphasis on the price of freedom", adds the guidance from Defense Secretary Jim Mattis' office to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

I thought the zone was effective. "At the start of the second half, they came down and flipped the table on us really quickly". However, Sexton capped off a tremendous game when he connected on the game-winner to snap the Tide's five-game losing streak.

Last September, Trump shared how impressed he was by the Bastille Day celebrations in Paris, where he visited French President Emmanuel Macron and concluded "to a large extent, because of what I witnessed, we may do something like that on July 4th in Washington, down Pennsylvania Avenue". It has been estimated that a major military parade, would cost anywhere from $10 to $30 million.

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

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.
