Drone Squadron Moving To Naval Base Ventura County

Pt. Mugu welcomes officers and other sailors

PT. MUGU, Calif. - Most people think of them as drones but the Navy calls them unmanned aerial vehicles.

And this week Unmanned Helicopter Reconnaissance Squadron One received orders to move from San Diego to Point Mugu by this Summer.

U.S. Rep. Julia Brownley said the move is critical to the local economy and will strengthen the base's role in national defense.

The squadron includes eight officers and 20 sailors.
