Naval Base Ventura County
Naval Base Ventura County, or NBVC, comprises three main locations: Point Mugu, Port Hueneme (pronounced Hu-nay-mee), and San Nicolas Island. The consolidation of Point Mugu and Port Hueneme happened in October 2000, and San Nicholas Island joined in 2004.
Established during World War II, Port Hueneme played a role during the Korean War when most naval supplies and construction equipment traveled through this port. Point Mugu, also opened during World War II as a training area for Seabees, was used by President Ronald Reagan when he visited his Santa Barbara ranch.
Today, NBVC is an all-in-one mobilization site with a deep-water port, railhead, and airfield. There are over 100 tenant commands and over 19,000 personnel, making NBVC the largest employer in the county.
