The memo, obtained by CNN, detailed the plans for the parade.

The Joint Staff is in charge of organizing the event, while the Northern Command will execute it on the day of.

Organizers also reportedly hope to "highlight the evolution of women Veterans from separate formations in World War II to today's integrated formations". The organizers also call for veterans to wear different periods' uniforms and perform reenactments.
