We would like to welcome each of new families that have joined us here at Edwards AFB during the big PCS season. One of the best things about military life is the opportunity to explore. There are several resources to help you get familiar with the surrounding areas. The Corvias team has compiled a list of articles with tools and suggestions for our military families to help transition during a PCS. Click here to review the articles on our blog. Don’t forget to also check out Edwards Airman & Family Readiness Center to see what is happening in your backyard.
As we kick off the new school year, our family neighborhoods will fill with more Airmen, family members, and pets taking advantage of the back-to-school festivities. Corvias is asking our residents to please pay attention to posted speed limits and traffic rules as they drive through family housing, to help ensure the safety of our children.
Thank you for your service and for allowing us to serve your family.
Service Members and their families are strong and face many adventures throughout their military career. Military life can also be stressful at times and some may start to feel isolated, overwhelmed, or angry when dealing with challenging situations. These reactions can be common responses to life events. However, these feelings may be signs of more serious conditions. People coping with challenges may feel like there is no escape from their symptoms, leading them to have thoughts of suicide. If you or someone you know is experiencing a crisis call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) – press ‘1’ for the Military Crisis Line or send a text to 838255. You can also visit http://www.militarycrisisline.net.
If you or someone you know is talking about suicide get them assistance immediately with these three steps – Ask, Care, and Escort. Ask your loved one if they are thinking of killing themselves. Care for your loved one – actively listen to show understanding, remove any means that could be used for self-injury. Escort your loved one – never leave them alone! Escort them to their chain of command, a chaplain, a behavioral health professional, or primary care provider
On September 18, the United States Air Force will turn 70 years old! The Air Force was officially created in 1947, but the Air Force’s legacy goes back to the military’s first purchase of aircraft in the early 20th century! Since its purchase of the Wright Flyer in 1909, the Air Force has continually accomplished its mission of air and space superiority across the world. Way to go and Happy Birthday Airmen! Here is more information on ways to commemorate this day.
