The Spa and Sauna Company, spa manufacturer Sundance Spas, and the charity Wish for Our Heroes teamed up to award a local veteran, Trent Robbins, a free Sundance Spa as a thank you for his military service.
Trent, who lives in Sparks with his wife and their three children, is a Purple Heart recipient who served in the Marines as a machine gunner between 2004 and 2008. He received his Purple Heart in 2006 after he was shot in the neck during his second overseas tour, in Iraq, all before he turned 21 years old.
He recovered and continued serving the remainder of his tour, but his four years of service as a machine gunner damaged his knees. He’s looking forward to the pain relief provided by hot tub hydrotherapy, as well as more family time.
