Pentagon issues guidance for Trump-requested parade: no tanks

President Donald Trump speaks at the Latino Coalition Legislative Summit Wednesday

The Pentagon appears ready to fulfill President Donald Trump's dream of carrying out a military parade in Washington D.C., according to a guidance memo from the Office of the Secretary of Defense obtained by NBC News on Friday.

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

Despite the lack of tanks, the parade will feature "a heavy air component", with military air crafts flying overhead at the end of the parade.

While sketching out guidelines for the parade, the memo further announced it would "include wheeled vehicles only, no tanks - consideration must be given to minimise damage to local infrastructure".

A Pentagon planning memo issued Thursday and released Friday says the parade being planned for November 11, Veterans Day, will "include wheeled vehicles only, no tanks - consideration must be given to minimize damage to local infrastructure".

The planned parade is meant to highlight the contributions veterans have made "throughout the history of the U.S. Military", the letter said, dating from the Revolutionary War to present day, "with an emphasis on the price of freedom".

As planning continues, the memo gave no more details on the type of weaponry to be featured in the parade.

Trump should be surrounded in the reviewing area at the Capitol by veterans and Medal of Honor recipients, the memo said. First reports of plans for a parade came out last month when The Washington Post reported that Trump had met with high-ranking officials and told them he wanted a parade "like the one in France".

This is the first of many steps in the re-signing of recent drat picks the Buccaneers will need to do in the coming months. Evans has recorded at least 1,000 receiving in each of his four seasons in Tampa.

Trump ordered the celebration last month after he was enthralled by the pomp and circumstance of Bastille Day on a visit to France.

"I think it's great for our country in terms of being a cheerleader and the spirit", he added.

CNN reports the Joint Staff will plan the parade and Northern Command will execute it.

Female veterans will be highlighted, and marchers representing previous wars will wear period uniforms, including historical dress from the Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps.
