On behalf of Corvias, I would like to extend a sincere “Thank you!” to Eglin family members. Your enduring commitment and sacrifice in support of your loved ones who ensure our freedom and safety is inspiring and humbling.
November is Month of the Military Family, our team takes special note of the remarkable resiliency of military spouses and the unmatched adaptability of their children and other family members. In you we see strength and character which is unmatched outside of the military family. Through move-ins and move-outs, service requests and resident events, you open a small window into the triumphs, celebrations and struggles your commitment brings to your doorstep each day.
Sometimes it’s the loving smile we see a child give their parent who has recently returned from deployment when we visit their home to fix a leaky faucet. Other times it’s a couple pushing a stroller down the street while we’re on our way to prepare a home for an arriving family. In all of our interactions with you, we are reminded of why we are here and why we are so proud to be a part of the Eglin community.
Our commitment to you is to provide excellent service as we continually seek to support and improve your quality of life at Eglin.
Thank you for the many contributions you make every day in support of our military and nation.

Stress can ruin your holidays, especially if it involves money. Holiday season should be the most wonderful time of the year. Here are a few tips to keep your holiday joyful and lessen your financial stress.
It’s so important to create a holiday budget. Creating a holiday budget is the best way to prevent overspending and lessen the stress through the holidays. Taking time to plan your gifts and organize holiday expenses instead of random and last-minute spending, will save money and lessen stress around over spending.
Cut spending in other areas. Eliminate spending on meals out, movie theater visits, and non-gift related shopping trips. You can also tighten up spending by lowering extra spending on things like morning coffee, lunch out, or even smoking.
Budget your time, budgeting your time can end up saving you tons of money. Allow enough time for all your holiday preparations.
Make peace with your limitations, you must prioritize. We will want to celebrate every holiday to the max and attend every party and send cards and gifts to everyone we know, we can’t. Acknowledging this prior to the holiday season and planning ahead as to what’s most important to you and be okay with letting go of some of the stuff at the bottom of the list.
Holidays are for food, fun and family. Remember that money can’t buy the memories of time spent and memories shared so enjoy each other. Happy Holidays!

Congratulations to Eglin's Pets of the Month Bugsy & Domino! Domino is significantly larger & younger, but their white markings are very similar. Bugsy is a 10 year old Boston Terrier. He's a pretty lazy guy that loves to cuddle and be rocked to sleep by his momma. Occasionally one of his human sisters will dress him up like a princess, but he doesn't mind. Domino is a 1 year old Great Dane/Lab Mix (aka Labra Dane) that recently joined the family. He was adopted from PAWS. He loves to play fetch, show affection, go on walks and run circles around the yard. He is nicknamed "The Gentle Giant".
Both fur babies enjoy gourmet treats. They're spoiled rotten...in a good way.
