February 25, 2017: A Sherman tank redeploys at Fort MacArthur during the Great Los Angeles Air Raid of 1942 fundraiser. During the night of February 24-25, 1942, anti-aircraft guns around Los Angeles fired about 1300 rounds during a suspected Japanese air-attack. The attack was a false alarm. Each February, Fort MacArthur recreates the night with a 1940s dinner dance and fireworks show. This year's event is on February 22, 2020.
My thoughts on images past and present.
