During WWII, civilians signed up to monitor all military aircraft flying overhead and would telephone in Flash messages to central operations so that the Army Air Force’s Ground Observer Corps¬†would know if an attack was happening or not. My Grandmother apparently had taken the course and was a part of the operation. She would have been living in Fresno at the time.
