In true Military Makeover style, host Montel Williams, cast and crew, special guest WWE Superstar Lacey Evans, and equally passionate national brands have come together again to serve those who have served. Marine Corps Veteran Jacob Tabora along with his family will be the recipients of a beautifully renovated home among other items of gratitude. The first of five (5) episodes airs on November 20th at 7:30am EST. All aired episodes can be viewed at militarymakeover.tv.

After completing his first tour in Iraq, Jacob was based as a Tank Gunner at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms, CA, when a 120mm round malfunctioned and exploded inside his tank. Jacob was left with second- and third-degree burns over more than half of his body, but as a Corporal in the U.S. Marine Corps, Jacob made it his new mission to persevere through this devastating situation. After spending five years in burn recovery in the care of the extraordinary US Army Institute of Surgical Research Burn Center in San Antonio, TX, Jacob started college at Northeast Lakeview where he met his wife Ceanna, and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA).

The Military Makeover team partners up with likeminded brands with a similar mission to help veterans such as our ongoing sponsors: Goodman Manufacturing, ABC Supply Co. Inc., MyComputerCareer, Tarkett and CaptionCall. This process also involves non-profits and local businesses in the community, and invites volunteers to step up and lend a hand in support of the Tabora family. Special guest WWE Superstar Lacey Evans, a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, also makes an appearance. The final reveal unites cast, 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
