Would love to see a military parade that rivals Macy's thanksgiving parade. Army's drill team, US Airforce band, Marine Drill Team, and so many other awesome people of our nations military strutting their stuff on a national stage. Hell yeah let's have a military parade!

FYI...

Here's a 2017 thread I created after President Trump first floated this "Military Parade" idea.

Dated 9.18.2017: www.abovetopsecret.com...

You guys in this thread are being relatively easy on the President, compared to last year's comments, LOL.

That is a funny clip, AirOwineSailorCat!


I'd like to see an inflated 100 foot tall Trump balloon in the parade.

Having a military parade is one thing. Most of them do such on military bases, have air shows, and show up for the public.

But what the President is wanting, is a grand military parade, and similar to other countries. However there are a few things that should be noted.

If it were just troops in dress uniforms, that would be one thing, and would be fine, the cost would not be that bad. However, the President is also wanting military hardware as well in this parade, and that is going to make the cost skyrocket. And here is how it breaks down, first there is getting the military equipment there to the city, and the fuel to move it down the road. And as it is military equipment, it will require military troops there to guard said equipment. And that is just the movement and equipment. What also needs to be added into the cost, should also be the repairs that would be required to both public and private property from said military equipment moving through the streets.

So who is going to pay for all of this?


I guess your not aware of this but military equipment moves through the streets all the time. Even have rubber treads for track vehicles for use on public roads. Tanks are taken by train to locations off loaded then driven to bases. National guard drove 2 m1s to an air show I attended. In fact I followed them in to the park.

Also on the 4th of July ft Campbell has a parade every year showing off the entire division.

Very nice but I'll say brits still remind me of ducks when they March. Its that slide they have to do it makes them waddle.

Why is that funny? I can't say that it feels as if you are lacking possibilities to display your patriotism.

is that because it's a slow march to make the spectacle last longer?
I suppose the more militaristic nations do their parades at a faster pace.

How about this one-the Nazi goose-step to the tune of the Lambeth walk;

No its because they have a tighter formation and when marching they lean backwards slightly and shuffle forwards. In the US military march you must remain perfectly straight and to March you must use you knees.

Here you can see the difference in this parade in Moscow. You had Americans and British marching with Russian troops

Well, he is cutting the head off the establishment...






I'm winning the lottery, well I'm buying the ticket and in the process of winning, my guess is I will win as soon as Trump cuts off the head of the establishment, damn I wish he'd hurry up.
On topic.... What's the parade for exactly? It just seems like a hey look at me and look at my big....

I trump gets his parade my condolences go to the soldiers. I never met a soldier that enjoyed marching dress right dress in parade drills. I personally hated doing it. So much so that when I knew one was coming up I would find ways to get on guard detail or well hell, anything to get away from all that crap.

If trump wants a military parade for some unknown victory we haven't heard about that's one thing. If he just wants to flaunt military power then it is idiotic. What nation in the world doesn't already know the US spends more on the military than any other country in the world? Who is trump trying to impress?

Russia just had the Stalingrad celebration. Maybe that? He's slapping some lipstick on a couple of innocent soldiers and lets them parade up and down the streets...
And we all know he is really small in the private parts area.
(Jk I assume that I don't know it.
Thank gawd!)
