WASHINGTON — The military is telling Washington, D.C., residents not to panic Tuesday evening if they see an armored personnel carrier rolling through their neighborhood.

According to an Army spokesperson, at least two of the Bradley armored personnel carriers being stored at a Southeast rail yard will be moved to the National Mall Tuesday evening in preparation for President Donald Trump’s “Salute to America” event during Fourth of July festivities.

The routes the vehicles will take into the city were not revealed, with details unavailable on where exactly they would be displayed or if all of the vehicles would be shown together.

The armored vehicles are part of a larger military-themed celebration the President has dubbed “Salute to America” that includes flyovers by the Navy’s Blue Angels and one of the jetliners used as Air Force One.

While the entire celebration has received criticism for its cost and deviation from the District’s traditional Fourth of July event, the tanks in particular have proven controversial, with Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton saying “weapons of war have no place on the National Mall.”
