President Donald Trump will get his military parade on Veterans Day this year, but it will not include heavy military vehicles like tanks because of the potential damage it could do to Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, according to a Pentagon planning memo. The organizers also call for veterans to wear different periods' uniforms and perform reenactments.

The memo stated the military parade route will start at the White House and run down to the Capitol, adding that veterans and Medal of Honor recipients will surround Trump in the reviewing area of the Capitol. There won't be any tanks in consideration of Washington's roadways, but the plan calls for wheeled military vehicles to roll through the streets.

Since taking office, Trump has frequently touted his support for the USA military and placed high-ranking generals in top White House and cabinet posts.

It added that the parade would focus on the contributions of USA military veterans throughout history, starting from the American Revolutionary War.

Trump was delighted by France's Bastille Day celebration during a visit to Paris last July, and praised the parade months later, saying, "We're going to have to try and top it".

Northern Command, which oversees U.S. troops in North America, will execute the parade.

The letter, dated Thursday and addressed to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, gives guidance for planning "a military-themed Veteran's Day Parade" in Washington on November 11.

"We have a great country and we should be celebrating our country", he told Fox News in a recent interview.

President Donald Trump and his wife First Lady Melania Trump, along with French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte Macron during the annual Bastille Day military parade in 2017.

During a press briefing at the White House in February, Secretary of Defense James Mattis said, "I think we're all aware, in this country, of the President's affection and respect for the military".
