Chilean Troops Hold Great Military Parade in Santiago

SANTIAGO – With a large deployment of troops and modern military equipment, the Great Military Parade took place on Wednesday in the Chilean capital of Santiago on the occasion of the Day of the Glories of the Army, celebrated every Sept. 19.

The military parade took place in Santiago’s O’Higgins Park presided by President Sebastian Piñera, who was accompanied by ministers and other officials.

The president and the officials present were served with traditional toast of chicha in Cacho (Chicha served in a horn) by horsemen, who also performed Cuecas, a national dance of Chile.

This year’s Great Military Parade was also joined by delegations of the Argentine Army, the Infantry Regiment No. 1 “Patricios” and the San Martin General Horse Cavalry Regiment, headed by the Chief of the General Staff of the Army of that country, Brigadier General Claudio Ernesto Pasqualini.

Also present was the Chief of General Staff of the United States Army, General Mark A. Milley.

In this year’s parade, the Chilean Army decided not to present tanks and other heavy vehicles.

Among the new vehicles flying over the parade were the new Black Hawk MH-60M helicopters and a score of F-16 fighter-bombers of the Air Force, while the Navy also presented newly incorporated aircraft.
