A Quiet Reveal for a War Veteran on 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' (VIDEO)

Ty Pennington and his team headed to Ottowa, KS, to surprise the Hill family, whose patriarch, Staff Sergeant Allen Hill, was almost killed by a roadside bomb while serving in Iraq. Though he survived the blast, he now suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder that can be triggered by loud noises, dimly lit spaces and long hallways.

The former Hill family home was located near a rock quarry and a train yard, both sources of constant noise and disruption, so the 'Extreme Makeover' team found a more suitable location on which to construct a new property.
