In Episode 1 of the Schaeffer family makeover, we learn the story of former Marine Corps Sergeant DJ Schaeffer and his wife Annie. Born on an Air Force base into a military family, DJ talks about how the loss of his father eventually led him to enlist in the Marine Corps. He also shares about his deployment to the volatile Sangin Valley in Afghanistan, and the resulting PTSD that has affected him since returning stateside.

Led by co-hosts R. Lee Ermey (The Gunny) and Art Edmonds, along with award-winning interior designer Jennifer Bertrand, the Military Makeover team takes its first steps toward a beautiful update of this military family’s Florida home. Military Makeover veterans Re-Bath are back to complete a stunning bathroom transformation, Jennifer takes aim at the living space, including a fresh new paint job, and contractor Ryan tackles a kitchen overhaul.
