Since 2006, John G. Picerne’s foundation, Corvias Foundation, has awarded more than $5 million in scholarships and educational grants to children and spouses of active-duty service members.

Amanda Bechtel is a senior pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Fayetteville State University. Mrs. Bechtel would eventually like to work with soldiers with Post-Traumatic Stress. Her husband is Spc. Benjamin W. Bechtel.
Cindy Himmelhaver is a sophomore pursuing an Associate’s degree in Biology from Fayetteville Technical Community College. Mrs. Himmelhaver currently has a 4.0 GPA and hopes to work for the Department of Veterans Affairs as a Physician’s Assistant. Her husband is Spc. Noah Himmelhaver.
Tiffani James is pursuing a Master’s in Social Work at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. Mrs. James recently completed a victim-advocate internship and has volunteered many hours at the schools in her community. Her husband is Sgt. 1st Class Dustin S. James.
Tiffany Streeter is pursuing an Associate’s degree in Dental Hygiene at Central Carolina Community College. Mrs. Streeter currently has a 4.0 GPA and is an active volunteer in her community. Her husband is Staff Sgt. David T. Streeter.
Earning $250 has never been easier with the Randolph Pointe referral program. If you refer someone who moves into Randolph Pointe, $250 is yours! If you know someone who is looking to move into Randolph Pointe, encourage them to apply now! The sooner the referral moves into the community, the sooner you will receive your reward.
Here is how it works:
- When you refer someone to Randolph Pointe, give the Community Office a heads-up.
- When your referral applies to live at Randolph Pointe, be sure they note your name as their referral on their housing application.
- Once your referral moves into Randolph Pointe, $250 will be provided to you as a thank you!
It’s that easy.
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 Specialist 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.

For more information, please call FMWR at 910-396-1217.
One of the many fantastic Randolph Pointe amenities is the picnic pavilion near the mailboxes. The area is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. No reservations are required, of course, and a Wilmington grill is there for you to use at your convenience. If you’re inviting friends and/or family over, don’t forget that this beautiful shaded area is at your disposal. Thank you for tidying up the area before you return home!
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.
If your work order is an emergency, please call the Community Office immediately. Our website should not be used for any emergency situations.
As a reminder, each work order is classified according to its urgency:
- Emergency – Response time in 8 hours or less. The response time for each work order emergency may differ depending on the type of emergency. Some examples of maintenance emergencies include burst or frozen pipes, sewer back-up, electrical short or fire.
- Urgent – Response and completion time in 2 working days or less. Urgent work is required to correct a condition that could become an emergency. Some examples include a broken garage door or a broken garbage disposal.
- Routine – Completion time in 6 working days or less. Routine work is needed for an inconvenience that does not pose a hazard or a potential hazard. This may include a broken drawer or loose towel bar.
Please contact the Community Office if there are questions concerning any maintenance issues.

As stated in the Residency Occupancy Agreement and on the Pet Policy Acknowledgement form, the only pets that are currently allowed at Randolph Pointe are (up to) two caged birds and fish. Currently, no other pets are allowed nor are any pets allowed to visit your apartment for pet-sitting purposes.
All residents signed these documents upon move-in. If an unapproved animal is found in your apartment, the resident will be given a written violation. A member of the Randolph Pointe staff will then follow up to make sure that the pet has been removed. A note is then made and damages may be charged to the resident upon move out. Please help keep Randolph Pointe in the best possible condition for you and future residents by not housing animals in your apartment!
The Corvias Military Living annual resident satisfaction survey will begin in October and will continue into November. Surveys are conducted by SatisFacts, an independent property management research firm.
SatisFacts will contact residents by e-mail to complete a brief online survey. While participation is voluntary, your feedback is appreciated so we can work to improve your experience. Please contact the Community Office for more information.
