Iinaugural parade to spotlight military and police units
The inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump will include a parade composed of 8,000 marchers from 40 organizations including the military, veterans groups and law enforcement, as well as the Boy Scouts of America.
 
The Presidential Inaugural Committee announced in a release Friday the list of groups that will march in the parade following the Jan. 20 inauguration of the 45th president. All branches of the military will be represented, as will a number of high school and college marching bands.
 
“People from every corner of the country have expressed great interest in President-elect Trump’s inauguration and look forward to continuing a salute to our republic that spans more than two centuries,” said Sara Armstrong, chief executive of the presidential inauguration committee.
 
The parade will spotlight horse-mounted members of several Army units, including the Caisson platoon out of Fort Myer, Va., responsible for the carriage-drawn funeral ceremonies in Arlington National Cemetery.
