Happy New Year!

@LH-CaptainText:Happy New Year! Hopefully you all had a great holiday season with friends and family and you’re ready to kick off 2013 at Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC).

We’ve got a big year coming in 2013, with all the usual great events, like the Mud Run in May, Admiral’s Cup and Armed Forces Triathlons in June and surf contest in August, plus the return of the Air Show with the Blue Angels in September! We will see hundreds of thousands of visitors come aboard our installation to enjoy everything NBVC has to offer, and it’s really going to be our time to shine.

We’ve worked hard to upgrade our facilities over the past year. The Warfield Gym project is coming to a close, and the new field outside the Bee-Hive Gym has gotten a facelift that includes markings for football and soccer. We’re in the middle of renovating Needham Theater, just months after upgrading the equipment to accommodate the newest film technologies. Our single Sailors can enjoy upgrades in their liberty centers, and soon, shoppers at the Navy Exchange will begin enjoying new offerings in a refurbished food court. Those are just a few of the projects our team has accomplished.

I hope that you are enjoying the benefits of living and working in a community that pushes for constant improvements, and I want you to feel free to share your suggestions and desires for our community. As I’ve said before, this is our installation, and together we can make it the best shore installation in the Navy.
