Jackson Systems and Hochstedler Energy Systems recently worked to help a wounded U.S. soldier and his family.

The companies used their resources to support the Homes for Wounded Warriors Program.

Hochstedler Energy Services has been serving the north-central region of Indiana for more than 40 years. Company officials said when they heard about an opportunity to support a worthy program in their own backyard, they jumped at the chance.

While U.S. Army Spec. Anthony Walton was serving in Afghanistan, Walton’s unit was ambushed. As a result of this attack, Walton lost the use of his left arm.

 Though the family has a home in Kokomo, Ind., the repairs needed to make the home habitable for Walton’s return were extensive and costly. This is why the Homes for Wounded Warriors project stepped in to provide a safe and comfortable environment for the family.

Hochstedler Energy Systems worked with local manufacturers to get the heating and cooling equipment donated. Jackson Systems donated the zoning system. Hochstedler Energy Systems also donated all of the labor and materials.
