Photos of the 55th Annual Armed Forces Day Parade

Saturday afternoon, the City of Torrance hosted their 55th Annual Armed Forces Day Parade, the longest running military parade sponsored by any city in the United States. Each year a different branch of the military is honored with this year being the Navy. The Grand Marshal was United States Navy Rear Admiral Patrick J Lorge.

In addition to the dignitaries, high school and military marching bands, and military equipment there were several aerial flyovers and a mass swearing in of about 600 young men and women to various branches of the armed forces. While it was a pretty hot day, there seemed to be a consensus that it was a fun parade and the 20 degree drop in temperatures was quite welcomed.

The military equipment is on display at the Del Amo Fashion Square until 3:00 PM on Sunday. Continue reading
