The Phinizy family finally gets to see their remodeled Miami-area home, and a bevy of generous Military Makeover partners show up to make it happen!

Billy and Lauren Phinizy currently live in Kendall, Florida with their two young children, Benjamin (7) and Grace (5). While the family is faced with may challenges, they remain hardworking & humble. They love to have a good time, but also understand the value of working for everything they have & giving back. Billy’s military service began in the 1990s. He served as a 68w combat medic both times. Although Billy loves his country & is proud of his service, when he returned home, Lauren knew something wasn’t right. Shortly after his return, Billy spent several months in an inpatient facility for severe PTSD. At that time, they discovered he also had a “ton” of other health related issues. This resulted in his immediate medical retirement & being classified as 100% permanently & totally disabled by the VA. However, the Phinizys do not let this stop them; this amazing family still works to make every day a great day!
