A soldier stationed at Fort Lewis has won a $10,000 surprise home makeover.
Levitz Furniture was slated to make the presentation Friday at the Seatac USO Center as a way to commemorate Veterans Day.
Sgt. Roy H. Murry, 21, of Lacey, was chosen for the surprise by the American Legion Post 161 of Redmond for his service in Iraq. He was injured last year when shrapnel from a car explosion pierced his arm, said Jim Broe, commander of the post.
Murry was “someone we thought deserved it, someone young who served his country,” said Broe.
