American Homecoming is a Home Remodeling Show All About Helping Veterans
The Scuttlebutt | Season 8 Episode 11
Joining The Scuttlebutt this week is actor and host of American Homecoming Jack Maxwell. Jack has appeared on television in Lost, 24, House, Without a Trace, Beverly Hills 90210, General Hospital, and All My Children. He hosted all four seasons of Travel Channel’s Booze Traveler and has now turned his attention to helping spread the word about disabled veterans.
It is an unfortunate fact that many of our veterans return from serving our country disabled, to a house that no longer serves them. What was once an easy walk up a couple of steps to the front door now requires a ramp. Hardwood floors are not a luxury but a necessity.
Navigating the house now becomes a difficult, time-consuming, often-aggravating chore.
In American Homecoming, a veteran and their family, will be sent away for one week on a surprise vacation. Meanwhile, the expert team of carpenters and designers, along with an army of volunteers, mobilizes with military precision to renovate and remodel the house.
Each episode concludes with the unsuspecting family returning to a yard filled with an army of volunteers waiting to introduce them to their new home. One that is more welcoming, livable, and easier to navigate, with greater accessibility. As an added bonus, the house is updated with new furniture, appliances, decor, and household goods.
