Valley Center, CA – June 27, 2016 – Strategic Products and Services (SPS), a unified communications system integrator and managed services provider, today announced that its employees participated in a Homes for Our Troops Volunteer Day for Marine Sergeant Toran Gaal on June 25, 2016, in Valley Center, Calif.

As part of the Homes for Our Troops Volunteer Day, a group of SPS employees helped install the landscaping plan for the home of Sgt. Gaal, who served with the 1st Battalion, 5th Marines in Sangin, Afghanistan. SPS volunteers helped plant flowers, spread mulch and install sod. This effort demonstrates SPS employees’ commitment to lending a helping hand to better their communities.

“I am very humbled to lead this team in helping out my fellow Marine, Sgt. Gaal, who has sacrificed so much for our country,” said Luis Berlanga, Sr. Director, Systems Engineering, for SPS. “At SPS, we are always striving to improve team unity, and we could think of no better way to come together for a common purpose than through this volunteering effort. This was an immensely rewarding experience, and I am proud of my team for wholeheartedly embracing the opportunity to give back.”

Sgt. Gaal lost both of his legs and suffered severe brain injury when an improvised explosive device (IED) detonated beneath him in 2011, during his third deployment. Homes for Our Troops has provided Sgt. Gaal with a mortgage-free, wheelchair accessible home that is built around his needs.
