Naval Construction Battalion Center Port Hueneme is the West Coast homeport of the Navy’s Seabees (from "C.B.", the initials for "Construction Battalion"). Port Hueneme (pronounced "Why-nee-mee"), supports the training and mobilization requirements for more than 2,600 active-duty personnel. The CBC also operates the 1,600-acre (6.5 km2) Naval Base Ventura County - Port Hueneme installation. The CBC is located on the vast agricultural Oxnard Plain, about 60 miles (97 km) northwest of Los Angeles, on the Southern California coast.
In 2000, the center merged with nearby Naval Air Station Point Mugu to form Naval Base Ventura County.
