Hopefully, you were able to catch Military Makeover with Montel Episode #1 with the Willett family that aired last week! If you missed it, you can catch this Friday, June 7th at 7:30 am et/pt on Lifetime TV!
Ok, so you have now met the family: former Air Force veteran, Cody Willett who served in Afghanistan; his wife Jessica; son (3 year old) Carter and new baby girl, Kendall. Cody came home to Ashville, NY (Chautauqua County, NY). He came home with some injuries he incurred while he was in combat, some you can and some you can’t see. The transition to civilian life has been challenging, but Cody is still serving his country by taking a job at the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Dept doing IT. Cody is still updating his education while being employed full-time.
Military Makeover is going to be redoing their home, to help this well-deserving family live a bit easier and give them important amenities that will enhance their everyday lives! The Military Makeover team of Art, Ryan and Jennifer will head up the project with the help of Home Depot and volunteers from the local stores as well as volunteers from the entire town…to make the renovation happen. J Dog Junk Removal & Hauling in the very beginning were the major players with demo and removal of wood, metal, scrapes, and all the things that needed to be taken away pre-redo. They are a veteran owned company in Albany, NY that employs veterans!
With the Willetts temporarily moved out of their home during the makeover, lots of work is underway to make all the family’s dreams come true. The whole town rallied, plus some local companies and some not so local ones, like Mane ‘n Tail.
Follow the show on Lifetime TV and the Willetts on their journey for the next few weeks and the following 4 more episodes of their Military Makeover with Montel! Episode #2 will air Friday, June 14th at 7:30 am (et/pt).
Here is Episode #1 in case you aren’t able to tune in
