The military parade proposed by President Donald Trump will cost $12 million, the Pentagon confirmed Wednesday.

五角大楼星期三确认,川普总统提议举行的阅兵式的费用为1200万美元。

Pentagon officials said the figure was a planning estimate, which could easily change once the final plan is approved.

五角大楼官员说,这个数字是计划估算,最后批准计划的数字很可能有变化。

The $12 million cost is nearly the same as the budget for the now-canceled military exercises with South Korea.Trump called off the annual exercise after meeting with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un, citing their cost and calling them "very provocative" to Pyongyang.

1200万美元几乎等于现已取消的美韩联合军演的费用。川普总统与朝鲜领导人金正恩会面后取消了美韩军演,称军演费用庞大并对朝鲜有很挑衅性。

The parade will take place in Washington on Nov. 10. According to a Pantagon memo released in March, the parade will travel from the White House to the U.S. Capitol.

美国阅兵式定于11月10号在华盛顿举行。根据五角大楼今年3月公布的一份备忘录,阅兵式路线将从白宫到美国国会山。

The memo said the focus of the parade will be on the “contributions of U.S. military veterans throughout history,” starting from the American Revolutionary War. The parade will include wheeled vehicles but no tanks. Some troops will wear period uniforms and the airplanes used at the end of the parade will also include “older aircraft, as available.”

五角大楼的备忘录说,阅兵式的重点是美国独立战争以来美国军人做出的贡献。参加阅兵式的有轮式军用车辆,但是将没有坦克参加。参加阅兵式的一些军队将穿不同历史时期的军装,阅兵式结束时飞过天空的飞机也将根据资源情况包括一些老式飞机。

The inspiration to hold a military parade came from the president’s trip to France last year when he and first lady Melania Trump watched Bastille Day events in Paris on July 14, as the guests of French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte.

美国总统川普和夫人梅拉妮亚去年7月14日作为法国总统马克龙和夫人布丽吉特的嘉宾观看了巴士底日的活动。

Military parades in the United States are generally rare. In 1991, U.S. troops paraded through Washington to celebrate the ousting of Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi forces from Kuwait in the Gulf War.

川普总统随后提出了举行阅兵式的想法。美国很少举行阅兵式。美国1991年在华盛顿举行阅兵式,庆祝海湾战争中把萨达姆的伊拉克军队赶出了科威特。
