Florida-Based Air Pros USA Teams up to Provide Local Veteran with a Free A/C Unit

The Florida Gators Sports Properties and Air Pros USA, a leading residential and commercial air conditioning services company and the official Air Conditioning partner for Gators football, came together for the annual “Saluting Those Who Serve” initiative with the Alachua County Veteran Services Division. They awarded Vietnam Army Veteran, Melvin Campbell, with a brand-new air conditioning unit and installation, free of charge.

Melvin is currently living in a 34-year-old mobile home with air conditioning that is not much newer. He lives with his wife who cares for him as his health is failing due to the sicknesses from herbicide exposure in Vietnam. Thomas served two tours in the United States Army during the Vietnam War.

“We are thrilled that our Vietnam Veteran, Melvin Campbell was selected for this amazing opportunity,” says Kim Davis, Executive Director for Alachua County Veteran Services Division. “Our Veteran Services Team is committed to the Veteran Community in South Florida. We thank Air Pros USA for providing this gift to such a deserving Veteran, that will certainly improve the quality of life for him and his family.”

Melvin and his wife raised their family to be people who serve. His daughter plays an integral role in the community as a small business owner. She is married to a first responder who works as both a firefighter and paramedic.

“We are grateful for this partnership as both Air Pros USA and the Florida Gators are passionate about giving back to the communities they serve,” said Anthony Perera, Founder and Chief Growth Officer of Air Pros USA. “We work hard to honor those who have served our country with donations and giveaways. We also make an effort to hire Veterans as well.”

“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Air Pros USA for our annual Saluting Those Who Serve initiative,” said Scott Stricklin, Athletics Director at the University of Florida. “They join other prestigious companies in supporting the Florida Gators and are truly exemplary not only as one of the fastest growing heating and air conditioning companies in the state, but also in their commitment to Veterans and giving back.”

Air Pros USA is continuously finding ways to give back to the community, including Veterans and military service members, to thank them for their service. For more information visit
