Know of a Military Family(s) in Need?

ABC's reality show "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" is looking for military families that are in dire need of home makeovers. They have teamed up with the boys over at Ranger Up (another great place to get Tea Party gear):

"In addition to finding military families, Ranger Up will also verify that applicants are truly in need, said company CEO Nick Palmisciano. To be eligible, families must have children and own their home, which cannot be in foreclosure or have a lien against it.

Palmisciano, a West Point graduate, recommended that troops looking for a family to nominate contact their first sergeant.

“First sergeant’s going to be the person who knows best, in every company, who needs the help,” he said.

People who want to apply for a home makeover or nominate someone else can e-mail Ranger Up at extremerangerup@gmail.com. (source)

A different kind of show and makeover, but also looking for deserving military recipients:

"Facing Trauma" will follow facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Dr. Andrew Jacono as he helps reconstruct the faces and lives of people who were wounded in the line of duty during military service, domestic violence, or violent crime.

Do you know of a veteran that could benefit from Dr. Jacono's expertise? Current casting call information
