The "EM: HE" Designers Head to Fort Hood to Rally the Troops

"Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" has enlisted in Killeen, Texas. Construction has begun on a dream home for one deserving young couple affected by the Fort Hood attack on November 5, 2009, when a gunman fired more than 100 rounds at soldiers and civilians on base. In the aftermath, 13 people were left dead and 32 others were wounded. Among those caught in the crossfire was Patrick Zeigler, a soldier who had only returned from Iraq two weeks earlier. On that ill-fated day, Patrick was hit four times, with one near fatal gunshot to the head, and his life was forever changed. After the tragedy, his fianc�e, Jessica Hansen, put her college degree on hold in order to be by his side and aid in his recovery.

SSG Patrick Zeigler has spent over 10 months in the hospital fighting for his life, and was the last remaining hospitalized soldier from the attack. With his beloved Jessica at his side, he has vowed to continue the fight and return to serving his country. Patrick is exceeding doctors' expectations and is even walking again with the aid of a cane. Jessica, a neuropsychology major, made instrumental decisions in Patrick's care, and many credit his miraculous recovery to her consistent love and support. On September 8, Patrick was finally able to return to Fort Hood, embarking on the next stage of his career and life with Jessica.

Now "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" is taking the opportunity to give this brave soldier and his fianc�e a foundation for this new chapter in their lives. One year after the devastating shooting, the design team will pay tribute to the victims and their families. In just seven days, team leader Ty Pennington, designers Leigh Anne Tuohy, Paul DiMeo, Xzibit and local builder Tilson Homes, Texas Association of Builders and Temple - Inland will help pave a new path for Patrick and Jessica for a lifetime of love and happiness.

The location address is: 3168 Hester Way, Salado, Texas.

"Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" is produced by Endemol USA, of Endemol Holding, and executive-produced by Brady Connell & George Verschoor. David Goldberg is Chairman, Endemol North America.
