    My family moved to Oak Ridge in 1944, and I lived there until 1955. It was a wonderful city to grow up in. We were protected with search planes guarding the city, and I think there were 6 or 7 gates guarding the city. No one could surprise you at your door. They were kept at whichever gate you were at until you went to get them after many questions were asked.
