I as 3 years old when this occured, and I remember it as if it was yesterday Battle Of LA UFO I was living with my grand parents in Highland Park, just outside LA when this occurred. Most people would say I was too young to remember, but when we heard sirens, (and) guns firing, it left an indelible mark in my memory: I remember hearing sirens, gun fire and lots of lights. Surprisingly, I don't remember being scared. Maybe because I didn't understand what was going on. I do remember my grand parents saying it was an "Air Raid".


There are many articles in the Los Angeles Times about this incident. It was very dramatic, and several people died as either a direct, or indirect, effect of the anti-aircraft bombardment. PD
