Photographer's Note

The 124th Tournamnet of Roses Parade saw 92 entrants,
(42 were floats,) this year including a first time float entrant from the U.S. Dept. of Defense commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Korean War. The float is a replica of the Korean War Veterans memorial in Washington D.C. Six veterans rode on the float. The flower covered float cost $247,000.
The Korean War was "the first test of the United Nations' resolve to stand against tryanny in all its forms."(official rose parade program)
The memorial marks the 60th anniversary of the July 1953 armistice that halted the bloodshed of the war although peace was not declared.
