Award-winning home improvement show Designing Spaces airing on the Lifetime channel has teamed up with Glock for the "Designing Spaces of Hope – Military Makeover" series, scheduled to air three consecutive Fridays beginning November 21, 2014 at 7:30 am (ET/PT). R. Lee Ermey, spokesperson for Glock, will host the three-part series.
Ermey, "The Gunny," is a retired United States Marine Corps Staff Sergeant and drill instructor best known for his TV and movie career, which has spanned over three decades, including his break-out role as the tough drill instructor Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket.
"Designing Spaces of Hope – Military Makeover" will chronicle the renovations of the home of wounded Purple Heart recipient Stephen Lunt, his wife Ashley, and their son. While in Afghanistan, Lunt was forced to fight an insurgent in hand-to-hand combat, resulting in numerous injuries and multiple surgeries.
Glock's focus has always been on supporting the troops and all others who go into harm's way. The company is dedicated to firearms safety and encourages everyone to teach loved ones about safety guidelines and take them to the range, according to the company.
Designing Spaces, along with partners like Glock, will take viewers step-by-step along this transformative journey to see how the house, provided mortgage-free by Operation Homefront, is changed room by room, inside and out, into a more comfortable home for the Lunt family.
Glock will be featured in a segment on "Designing a Firearm Safe Home" in part 1 of the Military Makeover as The Gunny and a firearm expert discuss Glock's S.A.F.E. campaign, the importance of firearm safety, and how to handle and store firearms.
