LOOKING BACK 2006: 30th NCR moves to NBVC from Pearl Harbor

Oct. 1, 2010, marks the 10-year anniversary of the establishment of Naval Base Ventura County, the official date that Naval Air Station Point Mugu and Construction Battalion Center Port Hueneme combined under a single commander. In recogntion of the anniversary, The Lighthouse is publishing these “Looking back” items.

Seabees from the 30th Naval Construction Regiment (NCR) officially raised the command’s flag over their new headquarters building at Naval Base Ventura County, Port Hueneme, on July 5, 2006.

The 30th NCR staff moved from Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, to be near its six subordinate commands, five of which are located at Port Hueneme: Naval Mobile Construction Battalions 3, 4, 5, 40 and Underwater Construction Team 2. Construction Battalion Maintenance Unit 303, which has detachments throughout the West Coast and Hawaii, remained headquartered in San Diego.

The move “will provide us better command and control, as well as unity of command,” said Capt. Kate Gregory, then commander of the 30th NCR.

About 36 officers and enlisted made the move to NBVC, with 10 staying behind in Pearl Harbor “due to operational commitments and the cost and inconvenience of relocating everybody at once,” The Lighthouse reported in its July 27 edition.The move wasn’t expected to be completed until the end of summer 2007.

The 30th NCR moved many times during the island-hopping campaign of World War II and later during the Vietnam conflict. During its history, the 30th NCR has been stationed on Saipan, Guam, and Danang, Republic of Vietnam.
