DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. (PRWEB) November 01, 2019
In true Military Makeover style, host Montel Williams, cast and crew, special guest WWE Superstar Lacey Evans and equally passionate national brands, give the gift of a beautifully renovated home to decorated military veteran Sgt. Steven Wojcik who had served four years of active duty with the U.S. Marines and, to date, sixteen years in the Army Reserves. The first episode airs on November 8th at 7:30am EST. All aired episodes can be found at militarymakeover.tv.
In 2004, during Sgt. Wojcik’s time of Army Reserve service, an IED exploded among vehicles in his convoy. The serious injuries he sustained in the attack led this loving husband and father to an honorable discharge and medical retirement in 2005. Like many veterans, Steven deals with chronic pain, both physical and mental, and has recently opened up about his ongoing struggles with PTSD. Steven works for the Wisconsin State Police and lives in Strum, WI, with his wife Terri and three daughters.
The Wojcik makeover kicked off with JDog Junk Removal & Hauling, a long-time veteran and military-owned company, helping the family move and haul away demolition materials. The Military Makeover team then arrived equipped with donations from Tarkett (floors), ABC Supply (roofing), Goodman Manufacturing (HVAC), MyComputerCareer, Google Nest & GE technology, Dupont (insulating foams), Caesarstone (countertops), furniture and other gifts from all the generous partnerships that the show cultivates. Local companies, volunteers from the community, and WWE Superstar Lacey Evans, a veteran of the U.S. Marines, stepped up to lend a hand in support of the Wojcik family throughout the renovation process. Other brand partners such as Simon Properties treated the Wojcik family to a one day Simon shopping experience, while Kohl’s adorned the house with decor. The final reveal unites cast, national brand partners and volunteers, creating a literal “community celebration” of support for the change they created together.
“In the nearly three decades since I retired from the Navy, I’ve never really taken the uniform off because standing up for those who are serving now and those who have served has been the greatest honor of my professional career.” - Montel Williams, Host and Co-Executive Producer
