Military vehicles will roll through Washington on November 11 in a salute to veterans, a Pentagon memo has said, detailing US President Donald Trump's dream of hosting a military parade. The White House announced a month ago that Trump had asked for a large-scale military parade, an unconventional call that immediately fuelled comparisons with similar events in more autocratic countries.

"This parade will focus on the contributions of our veterans throughout the history of the US military, starting from the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812 to today, with an emphasis on the price of freedom," said the memorandum for General Joe Dunford, who chairs the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Pentagon plans call for "wheeled vehicles only, no tanks," as they would tear up city roads.
