Press Release (ePRNews.com) - MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Mar 04, 2021 - Titan Brands, a direct-to-consumer e-commerce company offering premium products at affordable prices, announced a partnership with Military Makeover with Montel® to transform a veteran’s house into an accessible, safe haven. The episode airs on Lifetime TV on March 5 and 11 at 7:30 a.m. EST/PST.
Military Makeover, a home improvement series co-produced by Montel Williams, Marine Corps and Navy veteran and former talk show host, helps to rebuild the homes and lives of veterans and their families. This season features retired Staff Sergeant Daniel Burgess and his family.
After four years of active duty in the U.S. Army and seven years in the Reserves, Burgess was catastrophically injured in 2011 during a mission to identify and remove Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) in an Afghanistan village. When an IED exploded, Burgess lost his right leg and suffered many other injuries including traumatic brain injury, extensive burns, and multiple fractures.
“After hearing Daniel’s story, we knew that we had several Titan Brands products that could make a big difference for the Burgess family, so we jumped at the chance to help,” said Austin Speck, Titan Brands Chief Executive Officer. “We are honored to provide products that will make a difference in the life of a veteran.”
Titan Brands team members joined other volunteers near Cape Coral, Florida to help the Burgess family by renovating their home. Starting with strategically placed Titan entry and threshold ramps, the team configured the home so that Burgess can navigate in his wheelchair safely and easily, even in areas that were previously challenging to access. In support of Burgess’ ongoing recovery, Titan also provided workout equipment, including barbells, weight plates, and plyometric boxes, as part of an in-home gym that the family can use together. A home is about more than just for function; the team also enhanced an outdoor space for the family with a Titan fire pit, grill and teak planters, creating an oasis where the family can relax and enjoy time together.
