Defending the Homefront: Geothermal Equipment Contributed to Injured Veteran's New Home
D.J. Smith Jr. went to Afghanistan to protect America’s freedom. Caught in a firefight with enemy troops near the Pakistan border, he ventured into an open area to recover two injured fellow soldiers. But before he could make it back safely behind protective cover, a bullet pierced his temple, passing through both eyes. Fellow residents back home wanted to help repay Smith for his service and sacrifice by building a practically free home to facilitate his continued recovery. ClimateMaster became one of several companies to donate equipment for the project.
