The Navy Munitions Command (NMC) CONUS East Division (CED) was established Dec. 1, 2005. The mission of the division is to provide East Coast ordnance management for fleet and shore stations; to exercise command and control responsibility over the NMC CED detachments and units and sustain stock points assigned; to provide quality and responsive ordnance material handling, technical, material support to the fleet and other customers in the areas of retail ammunition management; and to maintain and operate explosive ordnance out-loading and transshipment facilities.
NMC established a new detachment at NAS Jacksonville Oct. 1, 2008, when it transitioned from the NAS Jacksonville Weapons Department. NMC Det. Jacksonville functions as one of the Navy’s centers for ordnance management that aligns all fleet ordnance support operations ashore worldwide and provides quality and responsive logistics, technical and material ordnance support to the warfighters. NMC is responsible for providing ordnance management for fleet and shore stations, quality and responsive ordnance material handling, technical and material support to the fleet and customers in the areas of retail ammunition management, and for operating explosives ordnance out-loading and transshipment facilities.
NMC Det. Jacksonville is a shore activity in an active, fully operational status commanded by an officer in charge (OIC). The detachment reports to the commanding officer of NMC CED in Yorktown, Virginia. The NMC OIC collaborates with the installation commanding officer for local ordnance operational issues.
