At the Naval Weapons Station Hospitality Kits are available for check out for personnel moving in or out of the area. The Hospitality Kits include a coffee pot as well as a kitchen basics loaner kit (dinner service and cutlery for 4, pots and pans, bowls, etc.)
The Air Base location of JB Charleston has an extensive loan closet. Air Force and Navy personnel assigned to JB Charleston may borrow items for up to 30 days with a copy of military PCS orders.
