welcome home logo Welcome Home: An American Soldiers Thoughts on Home“Home is my favorite place.”

That’s how this video starts and I’m not sure a better intro could be given. In this vignette from the series we call “Welcome Home” we talk with the Michael & Michelle Hults about what home means to them. Michael served in our military for many years but when he came home from service recently the place he loved to come back to was almost completely ruined.

Superstorm Sandy, as it did with many homes in the Northeast, had taken its toll on the home of the Hults and with Michael being away there just wasn’t the means or the opportunity to fix all this damage themselves. That’s where designer and craftsman extraordinaire, George Oliphant of NBC’s George to the Rescue, comes in. 

George helped make the improvements necessary to get the house back to livable conditions and even made some improvements to help the Hults get back to enjoying the place that was so precious to them.

Michael remarks that one of his most favorite memories of home is bringing his son home for the first time. I know that feeling all too well Michael and there’s nothing quite like that feeling of coming home for the first time with that new baby.

Watch the video above and see how much the concept of home means to this military family.
