May 20th is Armed Forces Day, which was first announced created by Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson in 1949 and later announced in President Harry Truman’s presidential proclamation in 1950. This is a day to celebrate all of you and your families and thank you for risking your lives and your loved ones to protect our freedom.
We here at Corvias are so honored to take care of you and your families and want to send out a huge thank you to all of you for choosing us. We salute you for all the preparation you do and in many cases time away from your families to ensure the mission is complete.
We would also like to send out a warm Mother’s Day to all of our mothers here at Eielson. Thank you for all you do to raise our country’s future.
Looking to get rid of some of your belongings? Base Wide Yard Sales will be the every last Saturday of the month! To sign up for one of them contact the Community Office at 907-302-2170.

Having a pet is fun, but pet ownership also comes with many responsibilities. If you already have a family pet, or are thinking about getting one, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Care for your pet
Caring for your animal is the greatest responsibility of pet ownership. Your pet depends on you for basic needs such as food, water and shelter. To keep your animal healthy make sure your pet is registered with the post veterinarian, vaccinated, micro chipped and receives annual check-ups.
Pets require your time and attention. Whether your pet requires a lot of care or is low maintenance, find time to spend with your pet. Brushing your pet is a great way to spend some time together and can reduce pet hair around the house. Pets are social creatures and thrive on social stimulation.
Regularly exercise your pet to keep them happy and healthy. Going for a walk or playing around the house benefits both you and your pet.
Dealing with pet waste is one of those topics that every pet owner must deal with but no one likes to talk about. The fact is the majority of community and neighborhood pet problems result from inappropriate handling of pet waste. In addition, pet waste is the greatest source of potential health risk for your pet and your family. Scoop litter boxes daily and clean them regularly. If your pet spends time outside your house, clean up waste from the yard and common areas daily.
For your pet’s wellbeing make sure you always follow the Pet Policy outlined in the Resident Responsibility Guide. For more information on pet ownership visit the American Veterinary Medical Association’s website.
Your Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) is the stipend the Department of Defense allocates to pay for the majority of rent and utilities. When you live on post, BAH includes rent, average utilities, fire and police services, municipal services, as well as services like lawn care, trash removal, pest control, home maintenance, community amenities, project costs and future improvements.

Don’t forget! Applications for the Corvias Foundation $5,000 Educational Grants for spouses of active-duty service members are due Thursday, May 4. The application is available online at corviasfoundation.org.
Did you know? It takes three liters of water to produce every liter of a bottled water.
Your community calendar can help you stay up-to-date on trash, recycling, lawn care, construction details, utilities, sign up for text message alerts, 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.
