A Pentagon memo that surfaced Friday night reveals the first official guidance for President Donald Trump's controversial military parade in Washington, D.C.

Pentagon plans call for "wheeled vehicles only, no tanks", as they would tear up city roads.

In order to "minimize damage to local infrastructure" the event will not include any tanks, but will include a "heavy air component" featuring both modern and historic aircraft.

But it won't resemble the Bastille Day celebration in France that Trump had leaned on for inspiration.

"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", the memo said.

But the event will include plenty of airplane flyovers, according to a memo from the office of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, whose staff will be in charge of planning the parade.

The Joint Staff will be responsible for planning, while the Northern Command will carry out the execution.

President Donald Trump's wish for a military parade in Washington on Veterans Day has been granted.

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".

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. Then, in July, Trump watched a Bastille Day celebration in Paris and days later called it "one of the most handsome parades I have ever seen", adding that "we should do one one day down Pennsylvania Ave". "I think it's great for our country in terms of being a cheerleader and the spirit".

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.
