The Georgia Spa Gives Back program has named Command Sergeant Major Joshua Coble of the United States Army its Hot Tub for a Hero recipient of a Hot Spring Spas Aria. Coble was chosen out of dozens of nominations.
“He always puts others before anyone else,” says Coble’s friend Patrick Conley, a Navy machinist 2nd Class who met Coble through a military life group at New Life Church and submitted his nomination. “He’s always looking out for the best interests of his soldiers. I can think of no one more deserving than Josh.”
Coble and his wife, Corey, an Army veteran herself of nearly seven years, reside in Grovetown with their two children, Jordyn (10) and Judah (8). Coble is set to retire from the Army within a couple of months after a 23-year military career. He has held duty stations at Fort Benning, Fort Campbell, Fort Riley, Fort Still, Fort Shafter, Schofield Army Base, Wheeler AAF, Fort Huachuca, Fort Bliss and Fort Gordon. He service has included wartime deployments to Afghanistan, Iraq, Central & South America and Saudi Arabia. Coble earned numerous awards and commendations during that time, including a Bronze Star Medal.
Coble is also the president of the Central Savannah River Association, Sergeants Major Association and a member of the distinguished Audie Murphy Club, an organization of soldiers who desire to give back to the Army, community, soldiers and their family members.
That passion led Coble to start a nonprofit organization called One Ranch Inc., to help service members cope with PTSD through horses. The organization strives for complete rehabilitation of U.S. Military veterans, including medical, behavioral, occupational and spiritual healing. One Ranch commits 99% of all donations directly to veterans.
“We are extremely grateful for the service and dedication that Command Sergeant Major Joshua Coble has given to our country,” says Mark Stevens, owner of Georgia Spa Company. “It is an honor for us to present a Hot Springs spa to him. It’s our hope the hot tub can be therapeutic and provide relaxation and quality family time for the Cobles.”
The Cobles will receive a Hot Spring Spas Aria spa equipped with a FreshWater Salt System and Bluetooth audio system. Additionally, the Hot Tub for a Hero winner will also receive $1,000 in concrete or deck work from Spain & Sons Construction, as well as electrical setup work provided by Gravitt Electric.
