Foy: please thank your son for his service on our behalf. Hueneme/Mugu is due south of us about 8 miles. So sorry to hear about his experience with us, he obviously met the wrong Californians! 😂 And this area isn’t even that crowded compared to the LA area south of here.

Thanks MDR.  The worst of his experience in the Oxnard/Ventura area was in 2007-2008 when he was a baby-faced buzz-cut 19 year-old E-1.  He said he and his shipmates would routinely be ignored for service in restaurants and stores and they assumed it was probably clear at a glance that they were dead broke young Seabees too young to by alcohol and were probably not good tippers.  He  did say that the  acceptance by the locals was better in 2013-2014 when he was a 26 year-old Reservist on pre-deployment train-up at Port  Hueneme and Fort Hunter Liggett and had a pocketful of money and was clearly willing to spend it on pre-Afghanistan meals and refreshments!  But, he said, the crowds were much worse  the second time around.  My wife and I visited him both times and we noticed the crowds issues much more in 2013 when we spent several days there before his battalion flew to Afghanistan.
