JOINT BASE CHARLESTON, S.C. –
Effective Oct. 1, 2010, Charleston Air Force Base and Naval Weapons Station Charleston ceased to be two distinct installations and merged to form Joint Base Charleston. Beginning March 21, 2011, the city name of Charleston AFB will be replaced by Joint Base Charleston for all residents on the Air Base side of the installation. The Weapons Station will remain a part of Goose Creek for the foreseeable future. With this new name change, it is imperative that all incoming and outgoing mail be addressed with the Joint Base Charleston city name as shown in the following example:
628th Communications Squadron
103 N. Graves Ave, Bldg 302
Joint Base Charleston, SC 29404
It is each member's and organization's responsibility, including dorm and base housing residents, to inform all correspondents and vendors of this name change.
