It looks as if President Donald Trump will get the military parade he has coveted for months.
The event will not include tanks to avoid damaging local infrastructure, according to the leaked Petagon memo, but the celebration will include a "heavy air component at the end of the parade, to include older aircraft as available".
The idea for a parade appears to have been rekindled when the president visited Paris for Bastille Day in July and made no secret of his awe for the pomp and ceremony of the occasion.
"This parade will focus on the contributions of our Veterans throughout the history of the U.S. Military, starting from the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812 to today, with an emphasis on the price of freedom", Capt. Hallock Mohler wrote in the memo. Also participating will be veterans groups and the ceremonial Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps.

It is pertinent to mention that Department of State is planning to invite heads of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allied member states to watch the parade along with President Trump. Then, in July, Trump watched a Bastille Day celebration in Paris and days later called it "one of the most handsome parades I have ever seen", adding that "we should do one one day down Pennsylvania Ave".
Last month Trump asked the Pentagon to explore a parade in celebration of American troops, after the Republican president marveled at the Bastille Day military parade he attended in Paris past year.

His original vision for the parade, in which soldiers would march down boulevards alongside tanks, was expected to cost between $10 million and $30 million, White House budget director Mick Mulvaney said last month.
