On November 21, Designing Spaces of Hope–Military Makeover will air the first of three episodes on Lifetime chronicling “the renovations of the home of wounded Purple Heart recipient Stephen Lunt.”
GLOCK Inc.–makers of many of the most popular handguns in America–will be involved in helping the Lunt family with some of the renovations featured in the program.
The Designing Spaces promotional video for the series explains that Lunt joined the USMC Special Operations Task Force after high school and his first deployment was to Fallujah, Iraq. While he was in Fallujah, another team in a more isolated part of the country got stuck in the rising waters of a river and called Lunt’s team for assistance.
Lunt’s team went to their aid and hired the locals to help stack sandbags in an attempt to slow the flow of the river long enough to get the men and Humvees out. During this process, one of the locals attacked Lunt with a pickaxe from behind, striking him at least once in the back of the head.
Lunt eventually recovered from the attack and is now back home with his wife and child in South Carolina. One of GLOCK’s contributions is making sure he has the means for safe firearm storage built into his home. This includes quick access handgun safes as part of the renovations.
The first episode of Designing Spaces of Hope–Military Makeover airs on November 21, the second on November 28, and the third on December 5.
