Dear Seymour Johnson AFB Resident,
Thirty years ago, President Ronald Reagan recognized the importance of military spouse contributions to the morale and readiness of our nation’s service members. In 1999, Congress designated the first Friday before Mother’s Day as National Military Spouse Appreciation Day. This year on May 9, we continue to recognize and show appreciation to the silent force, behind the force, for their steadfast support and sacrifice.
As a nation, we salute spouses for their commitment, dedication, and patriotism. Military spouses wear many hats while juggling family separations, employment uncertainties, and frequent relocations. Yet, they still find time and strength to volunteer in our communities and manage the home front.
Corvias Military Living salutes our military spouses for your service and commitment! Thank you for the many selfless contributions and sacrifices in supporting our service members.

Please contact the Corvias Community Office at least 30 days prior to move out. We will also need you to complete a Notice to Vacate form at least 30 days prior to move-out. We are here to make your PCS as smooth as possible. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the Community Office with any questions.
If you are the spouse of an active-duty service member with plans to go to college, Corvias Foundation may be able to help. Go to corviasfoundation.org to learn more about available educational grants from Corvias Foundation and to apply online.
Don’t miss the Military Police Week parade on Thursday, May 15! The parade will begin at approximately 5 p.m. The parade map can be seen here. There will also be fun activities for all attendees, like K-9 demonstrations and vehicle displays, in the field next to the Corvias Community Office (268 Squier Avenue).
Flowers are lovely to look at, but they communicate more than beauty. Some have specific meanings behind them. Here’s what you can express to a friend or loved one by choosing just the right flower:
• Carnation: constancy, joy
• Chrysanthemum: optimism, hope, happiness
• Daisy: purity, loyalty, innocence
• Freesia: trust
• Gladiola: remembrance
• Iris: faith, wisdom, promise
• Larkspur: appreciation
• Lily: devotion
• Orchid: love, beauty
• Red rose: true love, desire
• White rose: true love, purity
• Yellow rose: friendship
• Pink rose: sweetness
• Tulip: love at first sight
• Snapdragon: virtue
Want to know what is happening in your community? Your community calendar can help you stay up-to-date on trash, recycling, lawn care, resident events and community activities. You can even sync your community calendar with a personal Google calendar by clicking on the +Google button on the bottom right-hand corner of the calendar.
We are continuing to complete our annual preventative home maintenance visits on each of the Seymour Johnson AFB homes. We will ensure that your fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, mechanical system and applications, etc. are in tip-top shape.
This work does require entry into your home, so we will be sure to inform you of your preventative maintenance visit in advance. The next group of homes to be visited will be 307-318 Chanute, 200-209 Don Allen, and 212-308 Etchberger during the week of May 19.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Community Office should you have any questions or concerns.
Seymour Johnson AFB residents and Corvias celebrated the Month of the Military Child at our Purple Up! event on April 15.
Sparked by a deep appreciation for the challenges military children face, purple is the selected color of this national movement of gratitude because it symbolizes a combination of Army green, Air Force blue, Marine red, Navy blue, and Coast Guard blue.
Thank you to everyone who attended!
Did you know that pouring grease, oil, and fats down the drain can cause your sewer line to be blocked? Instead, pour grease, oil, and fats into a sealed container or can to throw away with your household trash. Thank you for your help and cooperation!
Take advantage of spring weather! While the temperatures outside are comfortable, use a window or fan instead of the air conditioner. A fan only requires a tenth of the energy needed to run an air conditioner.
