The Patron Family

On August 6, 2011, Cody Patron’s world came crashing down. She received word that after serving more than a decade in the Marine Corps, her husband, Sergeant Daniel J. Patron, was killed in Sangin Valley, Afghanistan. Tragedy struck again in October 2018 when the Patron home was destroyed by the catastrophic Hurricane Michael, which made landfall as an unprecedented Category 4 and destroyed much of the Florida Panhandle region. After sustaining devastating water and wind damage, Cody’s home, located in Panama City Beach, is barely livable. With bare concrete floors, hanging ceiling debris, and a torn roof, the home is in desperate need of some tender loving care. The first step in helping Cody and Layla start anew is giving the family home the renovation it so desperately needs. That’s why Military Makeover and its compassionate team of volunteers, partners, and supporters are hard at work to transform their home into a place of healing and happiness.
