Planning Begins for President Trump’s Military Parade
Planning is beginning for the military parade that President Donald Trump ordered the Defense Department (DoD) to organize in February.
No budget has been set for the project.
The Defense Department can pay for parts of the event out of its training budget, by assigning a fly-by to a pilot who needs flight hours, and troops stationed in the capital region are not expensive.
Officials have recommended that the Parade route begin at the Capitol, pass the White House and end at the National Mall.
The date has moved up to 10 November
A Joint Chiefs of Staff team is putting together a planning order for US Northern Command, which will look at the specifics of the project.
The Pentagon is not responsible for other parade costs including overtime for the Secret Service and police, as well as constructing and taking down risers, stands, and barriers, the report said.
Pentagon officials said they would be able to handle the project
