Trump’s Final Plan for the Military Parade

President Donald Trump wants to hold his proposed military parade on Veterans Day, a date that would increase significance to the first public U.S. military procession since the Gulf War’s end.

Trump directed Pentagon planners to organize a Nov. 11 parade in the nation’s capital, according to an unclassified memo National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster wrote Tuesday.

The memo, according to Politico, was sent to Secretary of Defense James Mattis, requesting the Pentagon chief to notify Trump on “concepts of operation for this event.” It also lays out the route’s basic requirements: Trump wants the procession to begin at the White House and end at the Capitol.

Trump’s inspiration for a military parade in Washington reportedly reflects his July visit to France, when he attended a Bastille Day parade in Paris. He said he admired the celebration, calling the parade “magnificent.”
