WHO: Wounded warrior Shilo Harris, wife Kathreyn and their two children, who’ve been visiting with other wounded warriors at a military hospital in Germany while hundreds of volunteers have been involved in a joint effort between Morgan’s Wonderland and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (EMHE) to build the family a new home. EMHE team leader Ty Pennington, designers Michael Moloney, Paige Hemmis, Ed Sanders and Xzibit, along with Gordon Hartman and his team from Morgan’s Wonderland, have been guiding and cheering on the volunteers.

WHAT:First opportunity for the Harrises to see their new home as Pennington utters his famous “Move that bus!” command. Spectators are cordially invited to attend “the reveal.”

WHEN:Filming expected to begin as early as 4 p.m. and continue into the evening hours Saturday, Jan. 21, 2012. Because of final construction tweaks and TV production requirements, it’s difficult to pinpoint an exact time.

WHERE:News media check-in is located at the Media Tent at the homesite, 2270 County Road 306, approximately eight miles east of Floresville off State Highway 97 (between Floresville and Stockdale).

WHY:Volunteers have been working around the clock since last Sunday afternoon, Jan. 15, to build a custom-designed house for Harris, who was badly burned while on patrol in Iraq on Feb. 19, 2007. His face was literally melted away after the truck he was riding in struck an IED. The goal of the Morgan’s Wonderland-EMHE collaboration has been to give back to a wounded warrior who has helped and inspired so many others.

During endless months of painful surgeries, Harris and his loyal wife found their true calling -- to help wounded warriors through the agonizing and traumatic process of recovering, rehabilitating and learning to bravely face a life forever altered. Once sufficiently healed, Harris began a career as a motivational speaker, giving hope to those similarly impacted. Taking up the cause as well, wife Kathreyn began working for the Army Wounded Warrior Project.
