Naval Weapons Station Yorktown hosts 37 tenant commands which include Navy Munitions Command Atlantic (NMCLANT), the Naval Ophthalmic Support and Training Activity (NOSTRA), the Marine Corps Security Force Regiment (MCSFR), Fleet Industrial Supply Center Detachment, Navy Expeditionary Logistics Support Group (NAVELSG), Navy Expeditionary Medical Support Command (NEMSCOM), Navy Cargo Handling Battalion One (NCHB1) and 19 departments.

The station and tenant commands work together as a team to provide ordnance logistics, technical, supply and related services to the Atlantic Fleet. Today the station is a hub of activity. As one of the Navy’s "explosive corridors" to the sea, supply, amphibious and combatant ships may be seen arriving and departing the station’s two piers.
