Livermore, California was the location of Mennonite Civilian Public Service (CPS) unit No. 150, which served in the United States Veterans' Hospital at that place, an institution for tubercular patients. On 1 December 1945 a total of 117 CPS men arrived at the hospital, but the number declined in the following months because of transfers and demobilization. The unit was closed in December 1946.
