Aug. 16 (UPI) -- A military parade originally scheduled for Veterans' Day this year will be postponed until 2019, the Defense Department said Thursday.
"The Department of Defense and White House have been planning a parade to honor America's military veterans and commemorate the centennial of World War I," Defense Department spokesman Col. Rob Manning said in a statement. "We originally targeted November 10, 2018, for this event but have now agreed to explore opportunities in 2019."
The latest estimate of the parade was substantially more than a $12 million estimate released last month.
