From a distance, the meandering residential streets at the former Marine Corps Air Station in Tustin look much like the sleepy tree-lined cul-de-sacs of so many thriving master-planned communities in Orange County. Handsome duplexes, townhouses and apartment clusters fan out from a beckoning neighborhood playground. Baseball fields are a short walk away. But like the rest of the former military base, the dwellings that officers and their families once called home have been vacant since July.
