The Story

Patrick Tutwiler was shot in the neck by an Iraqi sniper and returned home with traumatic brain injury, PTSD, memory loss and speech problems. Less than a year later, their modest home was hit by an F4 tornado. Patrick and his wife, Crystal, pulled the family into a closet and used their bodies as human shields while the tornado tore the house apart. Patrick, Crystal, their four children and nephew were living on a nearby military base temporarily until Patrick was given his official military discharge. Because of his injuries and his current part-time employment, the family cannot afford to rebuild or purchase a new house. Now it is up to Extreme Makeover: Home Edition to build this dedicated soldier a safer and stronger place to call home.

While Ty and the designers, local builder coalition A.F.M.C. Construction & Remodeling Inc., American Dream Development, Blixt Construction, L.C., Harris Custom Homes LLC, Ponton Construction Inc. and Ryan McDonald Construction, plus hundreds of volunteers and workers are rebuilding their home, the Tutwiler family will go on a Disney cruise to the Bahamas and Disney's private island Castaway Cay. In addition, rock singer Gavin Rossdale performs his hit single, "Love Remains," for the family at the reveal.
