It all started after the US President visited Paris a year ago on July 14 to meet his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron to celebrate Bastille Day.
When asked why he would divert time, energy, financial resources to the planning of a parade, Mr Mattis replied: "The President's respect, his fondness for the military, I think, is reflected in him asking for these options".
The 1991 parade - with thousands of soldiers who fought in the war march alongside armored vehicles and a flyover of around 100 aircraft - cost about $12 million.
Military parades are common in some countries, but the United States traditionally has not staged showy displays of military power.
While military parades are a highlight of the calendar in Moscow, Pyongyang and Paris, they are rare in the United States, where displays of patriotism usually take the form of flag-waving, fireworks and grilled hotdogs. In early 2017, a Department of Defense official said that the military rejected requests from the incoming Trump Administration to include tanks and missile launchers in its inaugural parade out of concerns over "structural support" and the potential destruction of roads.
According to the White House, Pentagon officials have begun planning after receiving the president's orders.
Republican Senator Lindsey Grahamtold CNN that such a parade risks being "kind of cheesy and a sign of weakness" if it's all about showing off military hardware. Beschloss says some in the White House approached Eisenhower, himself a decorated military general, suggesting the U.S.do the same, to show off American might.

After that march represented a post-military campaign celebration, not a nationalistic show of military might. The location also has yet to be decided, but the newspaper says the president wants it to proceed along Pennsylvania Avenue, a route that would send it past the White House, the Capitol and the Trump International Hotel.
Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin said a parade would be a "fantastic waste of money".
Beyer is particularly concerned that if the parade follows the same route as Trump's inaugural parade, as suggested, it could take heavy equipment over the deteriorating Memorial Bridge, which is now undergoing major repairs. "I don't know. We're going to have to try and top it".
The Washington, D.C. City Council - which is dominated by Democrats - mocked the idea of the city hosting a parade featuring military hardware.
Military pageantry is an important part of American culture, whether it is the "President's Own" U.S. Marine band playing "Hail to the Chief" or an honor guard presenting colors before a ballgame.
