The Pentagon says it is providing 1,700 Troops and aircraft for flyovers at Independence Day celebrations across the nation this year
The personnel will be deployed to various “Salute to America” celebrations – Washington, DC, Mount Rushmore, Baltimore, Boston, New York City, and Philadelphia, according to the Department of Defense.
“The highlight of this year’s celebration will be our salute to the great cities of the American Revolution,” Lt. Col. Chris Mitchell, a Pentagon spokesman, said. “DOD will provide aerial, musical and ceremonial support to this year’s celebration in Washington, DC The flyovers will begin in Boston and proceed to New York City, Philadelphia, and Baltimore. From there, they will join other Department of Defense and heritage aircraft in the Salute to America over our nation’s capital.”
This year’s Washington, DC parade has been canceled. President Trump plans to speak from the South Lawn of the White House, and there will be a fireworks display over the National Mall.
