According to high officials, the US President Donald Trump has asked the Pentagon to get prepared for a grand military parade to celebrate the US military might. The Washington Post was the first media to report the plan.
A military official said, “The marching orders were: I want a parade like the one in France. This is being worked at the highest levels of the military.”
After the post was published the White House issued a statement saying, “Trump has asked the US Department of Defense to explore a celebration at which all Americans can show their appreciation.”
A White House official said the parade preparation is at the “brainstorming” stage and nothing with this regard had been decided upon.

US military personnel usually participate in parades 4th of July and other holidays to mark appreciation of military veterans. However, this kind of parade generally does not include gaudy show off of hardware.
