On April 11, Air One Heating and Cooling joined local contractors and Building Homes for Heroes at a Welcome Home ceremony in Port Orange, FL for Army Sergeant Stephen Pyle. Johnson Controls donated a YORK heating and cooling system and Air One provided installation services for the veteran’s new home.
“The support of companies like Johnson Controls and its high-quality YORK heating equipment and contractors like Air One Heating and Cooling enable our organization to reach more injured veterans in need and help them begin to rebuild their lives,” said Chad Gottlieb, director of construction development, Building Homes for Heroes.
Army Sergeant Steven Pyle first joined the Army straight out of high school in 1984, serving for eight years before being discharged in 1992. Following a break in service, he re-enlisted in 2001 and served in combat in Iraq. Sergeant Pyle sustained life-threatening injuries when his unit came under attack in Mosul. A mortar round exploded nearby and the impact sent him into the side of a disabled vehicle. When he came to, Sergeant Pyle was under physical attack by two enemies. Despite being badly injured, he overpowered both in hand-on-hand combat and
subdued them both with a bayonet.
