District participates in Armed Forces Day parade in Torrance
“Bobber” is the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers safety mascot. USACE uses “Bobber” to educate children on water safety guidance from the National Water Safety program to be safe in and around water by reminding them to follow his four golden rules: • Learn To Swim Well! • Don’t swim in water over your head! • Always have an adult with you! • Wear a Life Jacket! The Los Angeles District participated in the City of Torrance’s 58th Annual Armed Forces Day parade here May 20. The parade is an official Department of Defense event and is the city's way of expressing respect and reverence for the personnel who served in the armed forces, according to the city's website. The city honored the men and women of our nation's military with a three-day celebration that began on Friday, May 19, and continued through Sunday, May 21. The parade highlighted this year's honored branch, the United States Air Force.
