Tribute to the Troops

21 May


The 52nd annual Armed Forces Day Parade was on Saturday in Torrance, Ca.  The parade honors our military and each year a branch of the military is honored… this year it was the Army. It is a family tradition to attend, my family has been going to the parade since I was a baby! It really is a joy to be sharing this special tradition with my children!

The kids always enjoy the parade. There are so many reasons to go! We get to see the troops, marching bands, tanks, trucks, fly overs, helicopters, veterans of past wars including WWII… it is a wonderful tribute to those who serve our country. It is also a great reason to get together with friends and family and enjoy the day and good food too! This year was the best one yet!

To our troops, past and present, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!
