i have ALWAYS opposed mil parades anywhere, from PMA to 23rd March to wherever. they are useless, cut into training time, are just ceremonial, symbolise strict hierarchy and are no indication of combat effectiveness. if you don't believe me, look at Russian mil in #Ukraine
#Aesop moral: do NOT waste your time doing ceremonial things. focus on real training; and when you are training, train as you will fight. focus on avoiding casualties; don't celebrate them. wrapping own in the flag and wreaths is NEVER good. it is bullshit leadership.
