Torrance Seaside Heroes Park
22851 Anza Avenue
Torrance, CA 90505

Seaside Heroes Park honors Army soldiers Cpl. Joseph Anzack, Jr., 20, Cpl. Micah S. Gifford, 27, and Capt. Matthew C. Ferrara, 24.

These three young men grew up in this area, attending Seaside Elementary Calle Mayor Middle, and South High Schools. As boys they enjoyed scouting, baseball, track and field, wrestling and football but as young men they all chose to serve our country.

Answering this call to duty, they all became members of the United States Army. Each made the ultimate sacrifice giving their lives while at war in Iraq (Joseph and Micah) and Afghanistan (Matthew). They died within an eleven month period (December 2006 - November 2007).

Let everyone who visits this park realize the sacrifice made by these Soldiers so that we may live in freedom, and may our "Seaside Heroes" be remembered and inspire future generations.
