BELOIT, Wis. — As a veteran of both the U.S. Army and Marine Corps, Steve Wojcik was trained to be ready for anything that came his way. Earlier this year, though, Wojcik was caught off-guard by the surprise of a lifetime: His family’s home in Strum, Wis., would be remodeled through “Military Makeover,” a TV show that provides free home remodels to deserving veterans and their families.
The episode aired on the Lifetime network today, Nov. 8. Following its airing, the episode is available to watch on the “Military Makeover” website.
Wojcik served in the armed forces for 20 years, and he was given an honorable discharge and medical retirement in 2005 after suffering serious injuries in Iraq. For his service, he has been awarded a Purple Heart, Meritorious Service Medal and National Defense Service Medal. Wojcik, who now works as a Wisconsin state trooper, was nominated by a co-worker for “Military Makeover.”
ABC Supply was instrumental in the transformation of the Wojcik home. The company donated siding and roofing materials for the house’s remodel. In addition, a team of ABC Supply associates helped the “Military Makeover” crew and community volunteers with the renovation project.
“Through his time in the military and now as a state trooper, Steve has done so much to serve his country and community,” said Mike Jost, vice president and chief operating officer of ABC Supply. “American Pride is one of ABC Supply’s Core Values, and we can’t think of a better way to live it than by helping a deserving military family like the Wojciks remodel their home.”
Wojcik shares his home with wife, Terri, and their three teenage daughters. The episode featuring the family was filmed from Sept. 23 to Oct. 3, 2019, and is hosted by Montel Williams, who is a military veteran himself.
