A local Charlotte Army veteran couple have been chosen to receive a completely transformed home on the upcoming season of Lifetime’s Military Makeover show, hosted by talk show legend Montel Williams.
Luke Harvey served as an Infantryman in the United States Army for six years. During a deployment to Iraq, Luke’s convoy was hit by an IED causing him to suffer from severe head injury that resulted in extreme memory loss and the inability to walk. It took Luke two years to partially recover from his injuries. To recognize Luke’s bravery and sacrifice, the military awarded him the Purple Heart and Army Commendation with Valor device.
While recovering from his injuries, Luke met his partner Natasha Woodruff, a disabled veteran herself, who served as a Geospatial Engineer in the U.S. Army. During her time in the service, Natasha was sexually assaulted, scaring her with permanent injuries and PTSD. Upon her retirement in 2014, Natasha was awarded her the Women of Courage award by the Pentagon.
As a powerhouse parent veteran team, Luke and Natasha’s lives haven’t slowed down. They are parents to three young children who continue to keep their parents on their toes.
As a small token of thanks for all that Luke and Natasha have sacrificed for our country, the crew at Lifetime’s Military Makeover, are coming to Charlotte to redo the family’s home for these brave veterans. A team of top designers, contractors, landscapers and home improvement professionals will descend on Charlotte bringing building supplies, new furniture, gifts and more before airing later this spring.
Here is a trailer for the new show:
