A new memo from the Pentagon shows that the parade is expected to happen on Veterans Day, in conjunction with the annual Veterans Day parade on November 11, in Washington, D.C. And formations donning "period uniforms" may be utilized to "represent veterans from previous wars", the letter said.
"We'll send them up to the White House for a decision", about the cost of the parade and the resources that would be diverted to make it happen.
CNN saw a Pentagon memo outlining plans for the demonstration, and apparently it will include "wheeled vehicles only" and no tanks.
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 last time Pennsylvania Avenue hosted a full-fledged military parade was after the Gulf War ended in 1991.
The letter asked for the inclusion of the Medal of Honor Association, as well as Veterans Service Organizations, and to have veterans and Medal of Honor recipients standing around President Trump at the Capitol.
The Defense Department had earlier said it was planning for "around" that date, which is known in the United States as Veterans Day and in other countries as Remembrance Day marking the end of World War I.
Trump was inspired by the Bastille Day Parade in France and called on the Pentagon to come up with an American parade.
