It may not be the parade he wanted, but Donald Trump may finally get the chance to show off some of the military's hardware in the nation's capital.
The Defense Department is working on a request from the White House to have static displays of military vehicles and an F-35 flyover for the July 4th "Salute to America" in Washington, D.C., Task & Purpose has learned. No decisions have been made yet about what type of vehicles could be used.
Defense officials didn’t brief President Donald Trump on cost estimates for his long-desired military parade before he canceled it last week, the Pentagon announced Monday, seemingly contradicting the president’s own statements on the matter.
The American Legion said in a statement Thursday that money that will be spent on an upcoming military parade "would be better spent fully funding the Department of Veteran Affairs and giving our troops and their families the best care possible."
