April is Month of the Military Child. During this month, we take time to recognize the sacrifices of our military children, and celebrate their strength, courage and resiliency. Our youngest heroes serve by adapting to frequent moves, change of schools, parental deployments, and life transitions.
In conjunction with Month of the Military Child, Purple Up! is an initiative calling the community to show support for children in military families. You can do this by wearing the color purple on April 15th. Why purple? Purple is the color that symbolizes all branches of the military, as it is a combination of Army green, Marine red, and Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard blue.
Corvias Military Living would like to salute our military children and show appreciation for all that they do! Please join us at Spring Into Fun on Friday, April 3rd and stop by the welcome table to pick up a small token of our gratitude.

Late last year, families living on-post received a housing survey from SatisFacts to determine resident satisfaction. The data collected from this survey, as well as the quarterly RCI surveys, helps Corvias improve your experience living on-post.
Out of a possible 5.00 score, Corvias Military Living residents gave the company a 4.29 in the 2014 survey. Corvias earned the Superior Service distinction at 32 of the military communities the company manages throughout the country with a score of 4.0 to 4.49. Eight communities earned the highest honors, Exceptional Service achievement, with a score of 4.5 or above. This award marks the seventh year in a row that Corvias has ranked first nationally in the SatisFacts Annual Resident Survey, and the eighth consecutive year it has achieved the Superior Company Score award.
"We are committed to our mission of improving the quality of life for the service members and their families living on all of Corvias' installations," said Chuck Parker, Division President of Corvias Military Living. "This award speaks volumes about how passionate Corvias employees are nationwide about their jobs and those they serve. Achieving the highest rating from our residents is a tremendous honor and we are humbled by their recognition of our efforts."

In order to complete the inspection, access to the HVAC system and thermostats will be needed. Please be sure the area around the HVAC and HVAC closet is accessible.
