Although planning for a military parade requested by President Donald Trump is in the early stages, it’s likely troops from Fort Bragg — the nation’s largest military installation — could be called to participate.
Trump has called on the Department of Defense to plan a military parade in Washington, D.C. Officials from the Department of the Army, which would alert Fort Bragg troops, have not announced plans for specific units.
In a briefing with reporters on Wednesday, Secretary of Defense James Mattis said the Pentagon was working on parade plans to present to Trump.
“I think we’re all aware in this country of the president’s affection and respect for the military,” he said. “We’ve been putting together some options. We’ll send them up to the White House for decision.”
