Lober, Maureen

Maureen (Macy) Lober grew up in Litchfield, Illinois, but following the attack on Pearl Harbor, her father joined the U.S. Army and moved the family to West Los Angeles, California, where he was assigned to an anti-aircraft unit. Maureen shares her memories of the war, and her experiences attending University High School in West Los Angeles. She was with her mother in San Francisco on VJ Day, and remembers well the streets being flooded with sailors celebrating and hugging all the girls they could find, to include the Macy girls.
