Repairman fixes military wife's broken furnace for $1

When a military wife’s furnace broke down, a Pennsylvania repairman stepped in and fixed the malfunctioning unit at a huge discount. He charged her $1.

“He said that the $1 was a joke and to thank my husband for his service,” Bridget Stevens wrote in a since-deleted Facebook post that has gone viral.

Paul Betlyn of Moon Township’s Betlyn Heating and Cooling said the job normally would have cost about $150, but he gave Stevens, a mother of two, a “deployment discount.”

“I’m not the hero here,” Betlyn told ABC News. “The deployed, they’re the heroes.”

“I was completely overwhelmed and in shock when Paul handed me the slip,” Stevens told ABC News. “I didn’t really know what to say, and I still have a hard time finding the words to truly express my appreciation.”

Betlyn has since started a “Military Deployment Kisses Fund” on gofundme.com. The aim is to raise money to send families overseas to meet with loved ones during lengthy deployments. He’s raised nearly $1,500 in three days.
