In a memo, it said tanks would not be involved to help limit damage to roads.
According to CNN, which obtained the memo, the parade will feature military aircraft, but not heavy military vehicles like tanks.
The parade will focus on the contributions of USA veterans throughout the history of the military, starting with the Revolutionary War, and will highlight the evolution of women veterans from World War II to the present, according to the memo.
While the cost of the parade and celebrations haven't been revealed, NPRreported that it could cost as much as $50 million.
It looks as if President Donald Trump will get the military parade he has coveted for months. It will close with a "heavy air component", which officials hope will include older planes. The White House budget director recently told Congress the cost to taxpayers could be between $10m and $30m.
In practice, that means "period uniforms", re-enactments and even the use of an "old guard fife and drum", the memo says.
The Joint Staff will be in charge of planning the event in a way that integrates the parade into Washington's planned Veterans Day festivities on November 11, according to the report.
One major element that will be missing from the festivities: tanks.
The suggested plans do, however, call for a representation of veterans across US history and an air demonstration, according to a note from Defense Secretary Jim Mattis's office at the Pentagon.
