The ex-combatants will parade, identified with their VGM DNI, and accompanying the medal awarded by the National Congress.

Only ex-combatants recognized as war veterans by the Ministry of Defense will be able to access the designated areas.

The event foresees the participation of thousands of soldiers, trucks, tanks, artillery pieces and aircraft that will fly over the Argentine capital. In addition, a naval stop has been planned off Buenos Aires.

President Javier Milei will be present, in his capacity as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, who will observe from a box.

More than 5,000 military personnel would participate representing the Argentine Army, the Air Force and the Navy.

The route will begin at the Argentine Air Force Plaza and will advance north along Avenida Libertador until it reaches the Faculty of Law of the University of Buenos Aires.

It is expected to have approximately 45 aircraft belonging to the Argentine Air Force in flight during the parade. On the other hand, armored and heavy vehicles will begin to position themselves hours before the event. In addition, at the event a naval review will be held in Puerto Nuevo, where the flagships will be inspected by the President.

Before the official information was provided, there was speculation about the possible visit of F-16 aircraft from the United States as part of the future Argentine arsenal, after recently acquiring 24 Danish aircraft. However, there was no official confirmation regarding this rumor.


Schedule and details

The parade will begin at 11 a.m. and will be inaugurated by the War Veterans. Access will close two hours before. The central point will be the Rubén Darío CABA plaza, located next to the National Museum of Fine Arts. The entrance will open from Av. Pueyrredón and Av. Libertador, and rigorous controls have been announced.

War veterans who arrive in minibuses or buses from the interior of the country will disembark at the Faculty of Law (Av. Figueroa Alcorta 2263).

Once the parade in front of the official box is over, the ex-combatants will have a reserved place in front of the Sanmartiniano National Institute where they will receive honors from the Armed Forces.


Restricted access

The national government requested that only veterans walk during the parade, since they will not be allowed to travel with family members.

It was highlighted that only ex-combatants recognized as war veterans by the Ministry of Defense, identified with their VGM DNI, and accompanied by the medal awarded by the National Congress, will be able to access the designated areas.
