FLORESVILLE -- The family of U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Shilo Harris got the surprise of their lives Jan. 14, as the cast and crew of ABC TV’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” arrived to tell them they’d be getting a new home.
Harris, wounded and disfigured by an IED explosion while serving in Iraq, continues to recover from burns and injuries. He and his wife help other wounded warriors on the road to recovery.
The new home, begun Jan. 14 and planned for completion Saturday, Jan. 21, is being built to accommodate the special needs Harris has in the wake of his injuries.
Spectators and volunteers can visit the site on C.R. 306 just off S.H. 97 south of Sutherland Springs. Find out what skills are needed and more at www.morganswonderland.com.
