Southern Living’s Building Hope series profiles the work of Operation Finally Home, a non-profit which builds new homes for disabled or underserved military veterans. Each soldier featured on the series has his or her story told in 3 episodes. The first tells the story of their service and injuries or trauma, if applicable, and reveals the building of their new home. The second follows them through the process of construction, and details the ways in which the new house will be customized to meet their unique needs. The third episode showcases the house being decorated and furnished by JC Penney and volunteers, and the big reveal when the family finally enters their new home.
I cut & colored the third episode of Retired U.S. Army Sgt. Matthew Hutcheson’s story.
