However, a Pentagon memo declared the parade to be excluding tanks in order to lessen the impact inflicted on roads.
The memo listed a number of guidelines for the parade on November 11 and said the parade route will be from the White House to the Capitol and have a "heavy air component at the end of the parade". Some of those considerations included preventing the parade, which will likely integrate with Washington D.C.'s holiday parade, from featuring tanks and noting that it should include "a heavy air component ... to include older aircraft as available". Trump has sought a military-style parade since attending a Bastille Day parade in Paris with French Prime Minister Emmanuel Macron.
"The goal of this memorandum is to provide initial guidance for the planning and execution of a military-themed Veteran's Day Parade in Washington, D.C. on November 11, 2018", the office of Defense Secretary James Mattis wrote in a memo published Friday.
The planned parade is meant to highlight the contributions veterans have made "throughout the history of the U.S. Military", the letter said, dating from the Revolutionary War to present day, "with an emphasis on the price of freedom".

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".
In the memo, the Joint Staff are tasked to plan the parade, while U.S. Northern Command is instructed to execute it. The Army's Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps will also make an appearance.
"Being a great president has to do with a lot of things, but one of them is being a great cheerleader for the country", Trump said.
