Interesting.

Clever way to minimize violent protesters.

The same people who are opposed to it would love the idea were it a Democrat who floated this idea out there.

It’s so fricking stupid. I’ve been to Bastille Day, it’s fun, but it’s a relic of a bygone era. I’m completely opposed to this as an American, and the troops are probably even more against it. They’re having to take time off from their families to appeal to the President’s ego.

I really wish us enlisted folks could have some real push back to say no, we don't want to do this.

Going to be a big waste of man power and time for any units called in to march during this.

Parade practice fricking sucks. shite just being in formation for a change of command pisses people off.

And what if Obama had proposed this? I’m willing to bet you’d be against it calling the President an Authoritarian narcissist, and you’d be right to do so.

Most of the people on this board that are opposed to it are current or former military that know parades are a PITA.

As a member of the armed forces, you go into it knowing that the above will be the case. But guess what....they're probably going to get paid extra to do it. Anytime you receive TAD orders away from your command, you are given a per diem allowance.

This has very little to do with Trump’s ego, and more of an old fashioned way of reminding the world that we can and will f*** you up.

That doesn't mean people want to be in the parade or waste the time for a dog and pony show.

I highly doubt they will be cutting that many TDY orders giving full per diem. Probably see a ton of units make the trip and back in a couple days putting them up on Andrews, Boiling, Ft Meeade, or Ft Belvoir.

What a colossal waste of time and money. I don't care who is the President, this is nothing more than an ego trip.

It's one thing to have the parades as the troops return home victorious, but to have one just to have one is superfluous and something that is not needed

This isn't about current or former military members and what they think.

This is about the president and the American people.

Suck it up buttercups.

We do our talking in actual action.

Not in some dick measuring parade like our weaker enemies trying to be something they are not.

This isn't the first time we have had a military parade in Washington. There was one after the North's victory in the Civil War. That one was so massive it took two days to finish.

There were massive military parades celebrating the end of both World Wars. There were also military parades celebrating the inaugurations of Eisenhower and Kennedy. And there was a military parade after our victory over Iraq in the First Gulf War.

This military parade is obviously being used to celebrate the centennial of our victory in World War I. I don't see the problem and, if asked to volunteer, I will willingly participate.

There's enough military in driving distance. Won't be any fricking TDY. They'll be packing on the bus.
