Operation FINALLY HOME: Our First Donation for a Hero!

Last month, we were honored to donate our residential systems to a true American hero, and mark the beginning of our official partnership with Operation FINALLY HOME!

The new home belongs to Staff Sergeant Ray Coffey, who was forced to retire after several insurgent attacks left him with severe injuries, following two deployments to Iraq. Ray returned home with a brain injury that required the temperature in his family’s home be kept so low that they had to wear heavy jackets while indoors.

Henley Homes Inc., Liberty Hill, Texas, built the custom and mortgage-free home for Ray and his family.

With the installation of our systems, Henley Homes Inc. was able to provide both Ray and his family with an environment that suits each of their needs.

“In Ray’s situation when you have migraine headaches, PTSD, he needed a dark room that we could get very cold. Mitsubishi stepped up and gave us individual room air conditioners,” said Gary Henley, co-owner of Henley Homes, Inc.

Ray’s incredible story, as well as footage of the home dedication, was picked up by broadcasting stations in Austin and Philadelphia. One anchor, Jennifer Kendall, anchor, Fox News, had it right when she said, “That means for the first time in a long time one American hero can live comfortably in his home of the brave.”

Ray’s full story can be seen here on My FOX Austin.

We’d like to offer a special thanks to Casa Mechanical Services for installing the equipment. We wish Ray and his family the best in their new home and look forward to our continued partnership with Operation FINALLY HOME in the years to come!

We first blogged about our official partnership with Operation FINALLY HOME last Veterans Day.

Mitsubishi Electric Donates Comfort System to Wounded Warriors Retreat

September 6_Boulder Crest Retreat Open House

Today we had the opportunity to attend Boulder Crest Retreat’s grand opening of its 37-acre, first-class sanctuary for the Wounded Warrior Project. The ceremony was attended by military leaders, active-duty service members, Wounded Warriors and their families. The day-long event included a speech from Admiral Sandy Winnefeld, vice chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, tours of the retreat, a barbeque meal and outdoor activities with a quintessential campfire and s’mores to top off the night.

Located atop the peaceful Blue Ridge Mountains in rural Bluemont, Va., this retreat will provide the families and friends of America’s Wounded Warriors with a place to “reconnect, recreate, recover and reintegrate” with their loved ones as they are rehabilitating in nearby hospitals.

The goal of the Wounded Warrior Project is to honor and empower our service men and women who have been injured while protecting our country. The organization depends on donations and volunteers to continue to provide its services to our veterans, so when they approached us about donating one of our CITY MULTI systems for the new reception center at Boulder Crest Retreat, we were happy to participate. We hope that our VRF zoning system will offer the wounded soldiers and their families a year-round comfortable and relaxing environment as they go through the long journey of recovery. Our system will also help the founders of the retreat reach their goals to minimize operational expenses and create a long-term, sustainable facility. It is our honor to help provide this serene space for our nation’s heroes, those who have given so much to serve and protect our freedom.
