From its beginnings as the U.S. Army Air Corps, through its heroic performance as the Army Air Force, to its modern incarnation as the United States Air Force, this proud service has become a mainstay of America’s national defense. This year’s Armed Forces Day parade will focus special attention on the proud heritage of the USAF. Come join us Saturday morning, May 20 at 11 a.m. as the pilots and planes, i.e., Warbirds, stage for fly overs of the Torrance Armed Forces Parade. Meet the pilots. Take pictures of the pilots and planes. Gain that extra special bit of history those who only go to the parade and exhibits miss. Join the WMoF, the City of Torrance and the parade pilots as we honor our nation’s veterans.
