Crestron Eagles Presentation Hawaii
Crestron hosted the fifth Eagles Program dedication ceremony last month at the Wounded Warrior Detachment Hawaii in Kaneohe Bay. The company unveiled a new home theater system in the building lounge and recreation room to provide comfort and entertainment for soldiers recovering from injuries sustained during combat overseas. The Crestron Eagles Program was conceived by Crestron President George Feldstein to honor the service and sacrifice of our wounded warriors returning home from battle.
"Crestron is honored and privileged to give America's heroes a token of our appreciation for their service and sacrifice," said Pete Baca, Jr., Crestron's national government sales manager. "We hope that our donation will make their time here more comfortable."
Baca presented Lieutenant Colonel Gregory Price with a gold engraved plaque dedicating the theater. Lieutenant Colonel Gregory Price cut the ceremonial red, white and blue ribbon to officially open the new theater.
"We want to thank Crestron for giving us this very generous gift," said Colonel 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 installation was made possible through donations and efforts of Crestron's industry partners. AVI-SPL installed the system and handled all the programming. Other vendor partners who gave 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's Tom Corzine, John Sublett and John Miles attended the event, along with Pete Baca, Jr. and Jerry Wagner from Crestron. The young men and women receiving treatment and recovering at the Wounded Warrior Detachment Hawaii, as well as their families, have to adjust to injuries, therapy, and living without the familiarity of home and old friends. The new theater is intended to provide hours of fun and entertainment, and to be a source of motivation to gather and socialize.
