On Dec. 31, 2013, the Department of Defense (DoD) sponsorship of the Automated Housing Referral Network (AHRN) expired. Effective Jan. 1, 2014, housing offices no longer manage rental listings or communicate with members and property owners through AHRN. However, the AHRN website will continue to operate as a commercial entity and registered users will be prompted to review and accept an updated user agreement.

The Air Force remains committed to providing members with affordable, adequate housing and will continue to provide referral and relocation services. Housing offices will maintain available rental listings using a government-managed system. Members and their families should contact or visit the Moody Housing Office to receive assistance in locating suitable housing.

The housing office is located in Bldg. 320 at 3131 Coney St. If you have any questions, pleas

Finding meaning and purpose in life

As we embark on 2014, many of us wonder what this year is going to bring to the world and to our lives specifically. As we routinely reflect on significant events which transpired in 2013 and ponder on things we may experience in the New Year.

Some of us make New Year resolutions and some just "go with the flow." Have you asked yourself, "What is the meaning and purpose of my life?"

As a Chaplain, I would encourage you to ask yourself this question and start your search. I believe when you find the answer you will be truly blessed. I found my happiness and meaning of life in 1989, when I came to know God and accepted His will in my heart, in a small underground Ukrainian church when my country was part of the former Soviet Union.

Chad Hypes and Kristin Gordon, 94th Civil Engineering Squadron project engineers, were recently coined by Colonel Roy Alan Agustin, Air Force Reserve Command civil engineer, for outstanding work on several key projects for the 94th Airlift Wing.

Upon touring projects assigned to the two, Agustin decided that they deserved his Major Command Coin for Excellence.

We often don't say thank you enough to the project managers who are on the ground working hard every day to make sure these projects are a success, he said. I am very fond of the level of work that is being accomplished here at Dobbins Air Reserve Base.

Holidays can sometimes cause serious stress in our lives. When you add everyday stressors into the mix, it can become an unstable cocktail of anxiety and anguish.

First, realize when you are stressed. Stress can take the shape of all forms. Signs of stress include anxiety, muscle tension and pain, headaches, upset stomach, rapid heartbeat, being short tempered and unable to focus.

When a unit loses a valued member the effect is felt all across the base. The unit must continue on with the mission without her by their side.
