The MWR Community Recreation Program is proud to support recreational command events aboard NAS Jacksonville. A limited amount of equipment is available at no cost for command events that meet the criteria. All equipment is subject to availability. The requirements to receive this equipment at no cost are as follows:
- The event must be recreational in nature and open to the entire command. Excluded events are retirement ceremonies, reenlistment ceremonies, change of commands, hail and farewells, or other wardroom events. Events that do not meet the requirements may rent the equipment for a fee
- The event cannot be a fundraiser, private party, or involve the collection of funds, raising of funds, or donation of funds
- The equipment is available for use aboard NAS Jacksonville only.
- Reservations may be made up to six (6) months in advance.
- The request form must be signed by the Commanding Officer, Executive Officer, Command Master Chief or OIC acknowledging that the event is in fact a recreational command function that meets the requirements listed above.

Each CET comes with 20 tables, 100 chairs, 2 bounce houses, 2 cornhole board sets, 2 10x10 Pop up Canopies, Ladder Ball, 2 120 qt Coolers, and an assorted Sports Pack. In order to request a CET, download the form here.

The Trailers will be delivered on the day of your Command Event and picked up once the event is completed.
