The newest addition to Arcadia Publishing’s popular Images of America series is Ventura County Veterans: World War II to Vietnam from local author Jannette Jauregui. The book boasts more than 200 vintage images and memories of days gone by.
Ventura County’s military history encompasses much more than the strategic naval bases that have occupied the shorelines and flatlands of the Pacific Coast from Point Mugu to La Conchita. Individuals from Oxnard, Ventura, Port Hueneme, Camarillo, Santa Paula, Thousand Oaks, Moorpark, Simi Valley, Fillmore, Ojai, Piru, and the other cities, towns, and neighborhoods in the county proudly served their country in times of war.
The images in this book pay homage to some of those individuals—men and women who sacrificed so much to preserve freedom. From the European and Pacific fronts of World War II, to the snowy winters in Korea, through the tribulations of the Vietnam era, this book goes beyond the broad scope of war and into the personal experiences of Ventura County’s heroes.
