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".

((NUFORC Note: 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))
