Corvias Foundation sponsored the 5th Annual Shadow Run to Home Base in Afghanistan on Friday, July 18, which occurred in conjunction with the Run to Home Base event in Boston. Approximately 2,000 runners participated in the Boston event, and more than 1,100 Service Members jointly ran in Afghanistan. Soldiers and civilians trekked back and forth on a road stretching a mile and a half inside Bagram Airfield, the largest U.S. military base in Afghanistan.
In Afghanistan, the top three deployed runners included Spec. Zachary Olszewski from Fort Bragg, as well as service members from Fort Drum, N.Y. and Hurlburt Field Air Force Base, Fla. The Corvias family had a strong showing in the Boston run with new Corvias Foundation scholarship recipients, Zia Matti and Megan Conroy, finishing first and second in the Women under 19 Group. They participated alongside a number of Corvias Group employees and Foundation scholarship alumni.
As part of Run to Home Base, Corvias Foundation assisted in putting together care packages with toiletries, baseball hats, magazines, and additional supplies. These care packages will make their way to troops in Afghanistan, including nearly 100 service members recommended by Corvias Group employees.
As required by the Fort Bragg Directorate of Public Works, Corvias Military Living participates in an Integrated Pest Management program. Integrated Pest Management is a holistic approach to controlling pests that minimizes the uses of pesticides and limits families’ exposure to chemicals. To deter and control pest populations, this three-pronged approach emphasizes good housekeeping, preventative maintenance, and targeted professional treatments. For more information about Corvias’ Integrated Pest Management Program or to request a pest control work order, contact your Community Office.

Do you want to make some extra money by selling belongings that you no longer need or want? Do you like finding great bargains just down the street? Now is your chance! Host a yard sale in your own yard on Saturday, October 18 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. In the event of inclement weather, the yard sale will be held on Saturday, November 15 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
A sense of community is one of the most important factors in building ready and resilient service members and families. In the military community, support from others is the best resource in helping to face daily stressors, including feelings of isolation caused by being away from friends and family, long duty hours, financial stress, and other challenges.
It is important for members of the military community to recognize when someone they care for is distancing themselves from their community, their loved ones, their unit, or when their behavior is a source of concern. A sense of isolation can decrease one’s resiliency and increase their risk for suicide.
If you or someone you know is in need of help, there are several resources to assist. The Military Crisis Line (800-273-8255, and then press 1), also called MCL or the Veterans Crisis Line, is a joint Department of Defense and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) initiative. The MCL is staffed with caring, qualified VA responders who understand the challenges of military life. The MCL is a free, confidential service available 24/7 to all active duty, National Guard, and reserve service members, their families, and their friends. Those in crisis can also text (838255) or chat online at www.veteranscrisisline.net with a crisis line responder. People can also reach out to their local Chaplain’s office or Social Work Services via Fort Bragg’s medical clinics and/or Womack Army Medical Center.
