General George Patton

Veterans Memorial Wall
The City of Torrance has a Veterans Memorial Wall located at the corner of Torrance Boulevard and Maple Avenue where the names of Torrance residents who have died in battle are engraved in eternal remembrance and gratitude for their sacrifice. The City encourages everyone who visits or passes by this memorial to join the Torrance community in honoring all who have served our country and their families. Let us also remember the words of former President John F. Kennedy, "As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."
