I think you're talking about what used to be LA Air Force Station on El Segundo. I was stationed there in the mid 70's. No base housing and the allowance we got to live off base was set in the late 50's. i worked 48 hours a week as base security (contracted) as my part time job just to make ends meet. Couldn't leave there fast enough to suit me.

One thing I did enjoy about it was taking my son to see the Flat Track races at Ascot Park.

While I was at Vandenberg AFB in the early 80's I had a girlfriend that lived in Santa Monica. Didn't mind visiting LA for the weekends.
I left CA in '84 for the last time and have no plans to set foot in the state again. Besides, the ex wife lives in Anaheim, so another reason not to visit.
