A memo released Friday by the Pentagon outlines plans for a military parade set for November 11 (Veterans Day 2018) that will include service members from different branches of the USA military.
However, a Pentagon memo declared the parade to be excluding tanks in order to lessen the impact inflicted on roads.
The memo, with Thursday's date, says its objective is to "provide initial guidance for the planning and execution" of a procession that would run from the White House to the Capitol and integrate with the city's annual Veterans Day parade.
"Consideration must be given to minimise damage to local infrastructure", the memo notes, adding that there will be "wheeled vehicles only".
"The objective of this memorandum is to provide initial guidance for the planning and execution of a military-themed Veteran's Day Parade in Washington, D.C. on November 11, 2018", the office of Defense Secretary James Mattis wrote in a memo published Friday.
It added that the parade would focus on the contributions of us military veterans throughout history, starting from the American Revolutionary War.
As planning continues, the memo gave no more details on the type of weaponry to be featured in the parade.
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.
The parade route will run from the White House to the Capitol, and the president will be surrounded by veterans and Medal of Honor recipients in the reviewing area. The Veterans Day date means the parade will happen less than a week after election day, a day some have predicted will bring a "blue wave" of Democrats into office.
"The marching orders were: I want a parade like the one in France", said a military official told The Washington Post on February 6.
The parade will cost taxpayers up to $30 million, the White House budget chief has said.
