Description: When the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, Rose Marie Maniscalco was twenty years old. Although none of her immediate family was called into service, Rose Marie felt the effects of war along with her neighbors in the Heights. Helping them cope with the changes brought by the war was her contribution to the war effort. It seemed like everybody had a brother, a son, a husband that was in the service, she remembers. We prayed hard and did everything we possibly could to make things go smoothly in (our) homes and in (our) neighborhood, and we always worked together. According to Rose Marie, wartime was a time when neighbors relied on each other and did what they could to support the soldiers. We banded together, and we did the best we could, and we supported our men.
