In honor of Veterans Day in November, Houston-based retail chain Mattress Firm donated new Tempur-Pedic mattresses to 10 military service members in each of three U.S. metro areas: Houston, Las Vegas and Miami/Fort Lauderdale.

For the effort, Mattress Firm teamed up with Helping a Hero, a nonprofit organization that provides support to severely injured military personnel, according to a news release.

The mattresses were specifically chosen to meet the needs of active-duty service members and veterans so they can get their best night’s sleep — from their first night home and for years to come.
