At the start of the Pacific War, Camarillo Airport was taken over by the U. S. Army Air Force (USAAF) and tasked
with protecting the Los Angeles area from enemy aerial attack. In July
1942 a P-38 Lightning squadron was assigned to the field. In
mid-1943 the field became a US Navy Auxiliary Air Station

war as a USAF base.
On January 1, 1970, Oxnard AFB was closed and the base was deeded to civil authorities, being incorporated into Camarillo Airport.
