AVI-SPL Teams Up with the Crestron Eagles Program to Donate Home Theater System
In the spirit of giving, AVI-SPL teamed up once again with Crestron to give back to our Wounded Warriors. For Crestron’s fifth Eagles Program donation, they journeyed to the Wounded Warrior Detachment Hawaii in Kaneohe Bay. During the dedication ceremony in October, a new home theater was unveiled in the building lounge and recreation room to provide comfort and entertainment to America’s recovering heroes.
The Crestron Eagles Program was started by Crestron President and Founder George Feldstein to honor the service and sacrifice of our wounded warriors returning home from battle. Past Eagles Program dedications include home theaters in Walter Reed Army Medical Hospital, Bethesda Naval Hospital, MD, Camp Lejeune, NC and Fort Sam Houston, TX.
The Kaneohe Bay installation came together through the donations and efforts from several of Crestron’s industry partners. AVI-SPL installed the system and handled all programming. Other vendor partners who donated equipment include Marshall Furniture (custom entertainment center), Triad (speakers and stands) and Velodyne (sub-woofer). Crestron donated an Adagio home theater system, a two-way RF wireless transceiver/gateway, an iPod interface, TPS-6X touch panel, 52-inch HD LCD display, and a Blu-ray player
AVI-SPL was invited to participate in this program by Crestron because of AVI-SPL’s long-standing relationship with the Federal Government and specifically the Department of Defense. AVI-SPL has joined Crestron for four of the five Eagles Program installations. The next dedication will be at the Marine Corps Base Twenty-Nine Palms in California at the end of January.
“AVI-SPL is proud and honored to support Crestron and the other partners in such an important program,” said Tom Corzine, VP of Government Services, AVI-SPL. “The sacrifices of our country’s Wounded Warriors are not forgotten and AVI-SPL will continue to support these efforts in every way possible.”
“We want to thank Crestron for giving us this very generous gift,” said Lieutenant Colonel Gregory Price. “The generous donation from Crestron will help improve morale among the Marines, assist recreation therapy events and serve as a media source for presentations from staff and other visiting guests.”
The Wounded Warrior Detachment Hawaii provides and facilitates assistance to WII Marines, Sailors attached to or in support of Marine units, and their family members, throughout the phases of care. The facility provides family support, assistance with individual Comprehensive Transition Plans (CTP), post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) outreach education and job transition plans.
