An event filled with friendship, laughter, prizes, advice and self-discovery is coming September 17-18 to Fort Riley. Corvias Military Living is proud to partner with Army Wife Network, a multi-media resource site for Army spouses, to bring the Field ExerciseTM: Battle Buddies to Fort Riley’s military spouses. There is no cost to attend and the event is open to all spouses at Fort Riley.
The Field ExerciseTM: Battle Buddies is a networking and military appreciation event for spouses. Army Wife Network’s Tara Crooks, Janet MacIntosh and Paula Swanson will host two, free sessions from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday, September 17 and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, September 18. Both sessions of the Field ExerciseTM are free and focus on creating a personal support network to help navigate Army life.
“Our Field ExerciseTM will have a room full of talking and laughing spouses engaged with each other and recharging their spirits by putting themselves first,” said Crooks, co-founder of Army Wife Network and 2013 Armed Forces Insurance Army Spouse of the Year. "We have been to Fort Riley before, to a great crowd of welcoming spouses. We look forward to bringing our event there again and cannot wait for them to experience our new Battle Buddies activities!"
The two four-hour sessions are identical and will feature a full lunch or dinner, door prizes and giveaways.
Registration for these events will open August 31st at www.armywifenetwork.com under the events section. Space is limited and a ticket will be required for event entry. Remember; only register for one of the two sessions. Watch for more details and information from Corvias and Army Wife Network as the registration date approaches.

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 www.militarycrisisline.net.
If you or someone you know is talking about suicide get them assistance immediately with these three steps – Ask, Care, 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.
