Between 5,000 to 7,000 service members could march in President Donald Trump’s military parade, according to a U.S. defense official familiar with parade planning documents.
The figures are according to a presentation briefed to local Department of Defense leadership earlier this month on the progress of the planning, said the official who was not present for that briefing.
ABC News has not viewed a copy of the plan.
About 50 DoD personnel in the DC area are now supporting the planning of the parade, scheduled for Saturday, November 10. That number is expected to grow to 100 by the Labor Day holiday, and then to about 3,000 the week of the parade, the official said.
