I guess I never heard about it, but then I don't live in Hawaii.

I wonder how many relationships broke up over that? People being with the wrong people in the wrong place in a panic.... :?

Grew up in the 50's. Regularly had "drop" drills in school. Of course as kids we actually believed that a school desk would stop the effects of a nuclear detonation. Around the corner from me is a former Red Cross Fallout shelter, it's now a private medical urgent care facility. There were several more in places like the WPA built post office, National Guard Armory etc. Not near enough space for even 10% of the 1950's population. Air Raid sirens were tested regularly. All of this was a dog and pony show.

Why? Within three miles of my home were the largest Naval Base on the west coast, a major Army base (including a NIke site) and an Air Force early warning radar facility. It's also the largest port complex on the west coast. In other words about a nano second after the war started we would all be vaporized.

I still live very close to my childhood home. The Naval Base is gone. The Army base has now been taken over by the Air Force for housing families of folks stationed not only at that radar site, but the Space Force Base in El Segundo. Of course the port is still here and bigger than before. There are no shelters. The sirens haven't been tested in decades (yes, there are still a few around).

Why? About a nano second after the war starts we will all be vaporized.
