The U.S. gained control of the San Pedro area in 1848 after defeating Mexico in the Mexican-American War. It was then that the harbor was improved and expanded, becoming one of the country's largest ports of service, and is still considered one of the busiest today. The Navy took control of the area in 1888, and made it an official Fort in 1914. During World War I it became a coastal defense area and housed a major naval base. The number of warships expanded in 1931, to include 14 battleships, 2 aircraft carriers, 14 cruisers and 16 support ships. They all sailed to Hawaii for an exercise in 1940 in an effort to deter Japanese aggression during World War II, but were caught in the attack on Pearl Harbor, after which the battle fleet never returned to San Pedro. However, the area was used for Navy ships as a port of call, through the end of the war.1

Marriage and Couples Mental Health in San Pedro

Many couples and families in Los Angeles County, including the city of San Pedro, have difficulty finding enough food to eat. Over 850 agencies in the county feed hungry residents that number over 400,000 people. Over half of these people actually live above the poverty line, but are nevertheless food-insecure. Additionally, a married couple heads nearly half of families who are not getting enough to eat. Without proper nutrition, these families find work, school, and other necessary duties to be highly difficult.2

Families who are struggling with the loss of a loved one are able to seek peer support and guidance at one of the grief support groups offered at the New Hope Grief Support Community. Groups are nine weeks in length and are age-specific, so mourners can get support from others their age. Grief is experienced together in a warm, caring environment. Anyone can attend a support group, and although donations are appreciated, no one is ever turned away. For more information about available support groups or to make a donation, call 562-429-0075.3
