For example on every July 14, I switch to TV5 and watch how the French do it. It is really nice to see them parading on foot or on horses on the Champs-Élysées; the French even invite some foreign units to the party. The British armed forces also have that in London (although I can't remember which national holiday). When I think of the US, I keep asking myself why they don't make a parade involving a few selected units wearing full dress uniforms in the streets of Washington for the 4th of July. I don't think many people would complain about that.
Especially since they're a lot more "support the troops" than we are. You'd think that sort of things would be right up their alley.
