Cabaniss was an auxiliary field for Corpus Christi Naval Air Station during World War II and the Korean War. It closed in 1958 and is now used for "touch and go" training for T-34 turboprops from the Naval Air Station. The former NAAS now an OLF to NAS Corpus Christi.
In addition to waterside force protection, IBU 15 routinely practices combat skills in a field environment. In November 2001, the unit held training and a battle exercise at Cabaniss Air Field in Corpus.
