Naval Base Ventura County Protects Southern California

April 11, 2014

Captain Lloyd LeCain served in the U.S. Navy for many years. In retirement, Lloyd LeCain and his wife, Captain Valentine Nishihara, continue to support the naval community, especially the U.S. Naval Institute. A classroom at The Naval Readiness Center at Naval Base Ventura County bears Captain LeCain’s name.

Naval Base Ventura County in California includes the naval facilities at San Nicolas Island, Port Hueneme, and Point Mugu. It hosts more than 80 commands and three warfare centers and employs 19,000 sailors, marines, and civilians, making a significant contribution to both national defense and the economy of Ventura County.

Tenant commands include the Airborne Command Control and Logistics Wing; the Naval Satellite Operations Center; and the Pacific elements (and museum) of the U.S. Naval Construction Force, also known as the Seabees.

The base also features a commissary and the Port Hueneme Navy Exchange, as well as offices of the American Red Cross of Ventura County and the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society.
