Marching and standing at attention were among my least favorite parts of being in the military. I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in that. It might be a necessary part of basic training, but it's not why I joined.
Politically though, it might work to Trump's advantage. It's a cheap ploy, appealing to patriotism and love for the service members and veterans, but it will probably work. People are suckers for that sort of thing.
