The parade will also include a "heavy air component, " the memo said, with military planes flying overhead at the end of the parade. Such parades in other countries are usually staged to celebrate victories in battle or showcase military might.
The Pentagon memo was issued on Thursday and sent to Gen. Joseph Dunford Jr., chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, outlining the initial guidance of how Trump's desired parade, scheduled for November 11, will look, according to CNN.
General Joe Dunford, who chairs the Joint Chiefs of Staff, wrote in the memo: "This parade will focus on the contributions of our veterans throughout the history of the U.S. military, starting from the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812 to today, with an emphasis on the price of freedom".
Mr. Trump reportedly requested a military parade after witnessing last year's Bastille Day celebration in France, and the defense secretary acknowledged last month that the Pentagon had been "putting together some options".
The parade route will run from the White House to the Capitol.
Trump's military parade plans come into focus: planes, but no tanks
It is pertinent to mention that Department of State is planning to invite heads of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allied member states to watch the parade along with President Trump.
Since taking office, Trump has frequently touted his support for the United States military and placed high-ranking generals in top White House and cabinet posts.
CNN reports the Joint Staff will plan the parade and Northern Command will execute it.
The organizers call for the parade to display the changing role of women in the military, "from separate formations in World War II to today's integrated formations".
Trump should be surrounded in the reviewing area at the Capitol by veterans and Medal of Honor recipients, the Pentagon memo said. "It was two hours on the button, and it was military might, and I think a tremendous thing for France and for the spirit of France", Trump said in September.
Female veterans will be highlighted, and marchers representing previous wars will wear period uniforms, including historical dress from the Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps.More news: He s**t himself a little - Zidane explains Ramos' mid-game exit
