"They're very grateful," said Rebekah. "They don't take anything for granted."
Mom and Dad both have served more than a decade in the Reserves and that puts a lot of stress on the kids.
"We have to be gone a lot and a lot of the times at the same time. So they have a place they can be comfortable in when we're gone," said Rebekah expressing her appreciation of the makeover. "It's really great and I'm just humbled by everything that WAVE 3 and Active Heroes and all those other sponsors have done. Those sponsors included Meijer with a $250 gift card, Ashley Furniture with new bedroom furnishings and Hikes Point Paint and Wallpaper putting a fresh coat on the boys room.
The day ended with a surprise Rebekah didn't see coming. It was a new dishwasher from Charlie Wilson's Dixie Appliance to replace her old one that had a bit of a problem.
"The bottom melted and it was only cleaning on the top half," said Rebekah.
Now her dishes will shine as bright as the smiles on her son's faces, after a well deserved makeover for a family dedicated to serving our country.
