A man who sacrifices himself for others has received a treat from the Miami Dolphins and the Wounded Warrior Project.
Sergeant Guillermo Oeding is an active member of the United States Army. His 15 years of service include tours of Iraq, Afghanistan and South America.
“It feels good to have people like you helping out our service members here,” Oeding said. “I really didn’t expect that.”
The sergeant and his family received a Rheem AC unit, which includes a 10-year warranty and service from Air Pros USA.
“We are thrilled from the Miami Dolphins of our Football Unites program to be able to bring you a new air conditioning unit,” Rashauna Hamilton said.
It’s a welcome gift during the scorching South Florida heat.
“It really is a team effort. It was in conjunction with the Miami Dolphins and then you have to have our in-house team do that and then we have to keep it a secret from them,” Kenny Infante said.
Air Pros USA, the official air conditioning partner of the Miami Dolphins, donated and installed the unit.
“We chose to give him an AC because we’re actually working to find out what the needs of the family are and we found out with Air Pros that there’s a need here in South Florida,” Hamilton said. “We’re under huge heat indices and we knew we could fill it with a great partner and so that’s exactly what we did.”
“It happened in a really surprising way,” Oeding said. “Just in time, it’s going to be nice and cold.”
Air Pros USA is also accepting nominations to reward a few veterans through September 30. According to their website, the winners will be announced by December 31.
