Don't overestimate the stuff a young guy needs or wants; my son was in barracks and on a cutter before A school.
After A school, he got an apartment, and he's been in it since Dec 2011--- for weeks he was content to sleep on the floor, but he DID get a TV, a couple of game systems, and a TV stand.
Now he also has a mattress on the floor, a futon in case someone stays there, and because you need something to sit on while you play video games, a TV tray and a couple of lawn chairs. We bought him a microwave and a crockpot (which he doesn't use ), and he eats standing at the counter or at the galley. He does make great use of his coffee pot, and I believe decorating is restricted to a framed Boondock Saints print.
When he had his household goods shipped, finally, I used the opportunity to weed my kitchen and send him odds and ends (that he also does not use), and some towels etc.
That's about it.
