"Nothing has been decided or locked in stone", Secretary of Defense Gen. James Mattissaid during Wednesday's White House press briefing.
"I think we're all aware, in this country, of the President's affection and respect for the military". Nevertheless, it's an embarrassing waste of time, which is why Care2 members are signing this petition, Tell President Trump No Military Parade.
Bowser noted the unexpected timing of this proposed march, saying, "Usually when you see big military parades, it's celebrating the end of a war, and I don't think that's been announced".
"When you're the most powerful nation in all of human history, you don't have to show it off like Russian Federation does. So we're actually thinking about 4th of July, Pennsylvania Avenue, having a really great parade to show our military strength". The president is "exploring options" for different ways to "highlight and show pride in the military", she said.
Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump's intention was to have "a celebration" of the military.
While the US puts on various annual July 4 and Veterans Day parades, as The Associated Press notes, those typically do not include such "gaudy displays of military hardware".

"This is being worked at the highest levels of the military".

Though the US has held a few military parades throughout its history, Slate points out that the distinction is that these events were held in celebration after successfully winning a war, such as World War I, World War II and the Spanish-American War. "An ideology. And to say we're going to strut our stuff with tanks and rocket launchers and things like that, is just not a good representation of what the military does in a democratic nation".
No White House official has been in contact with Bowser, she told a reporter Wednesday. There have been debates since then about staging a parade to honor Iraq War veterans, but it remains controversial whether to or not to hold such a celebratory event while operations still continue in the region. Hundreds of thousands of patriotic Americans lined the streets in the nation's capital to cheer on the veterans of Operation Desert Storm. At least 200,000 people gathered to watch. It would be the same route as Trump's inaugural parade and pass by his family's showpiece: the Trump International Hotel.
