Bismarck War Veteran Receives Colorful Tribute at His Home

Posted:

Just in time for Thanksgiving, one local war veteran is receiving a special color tribute at his home.

He already has a purple heart, now he's getting something green.

Jon and Tonya Sigl's home is getting a makeover.

"I hope he's thankful of my color choices!" says Tonya.

Her husband will see the transformation when he returns home from a pilot instructor course in Pennsylvania just in time for Thanksgiving.

A deserving family--chosen for their sacrifices.

"He was the first soldier in North Dakota to be injured since the Korean conflict." says Tonya.

Benjamin Moore Paint is offering several fresh coats to warm up the homes of wounded war veterans across the country.

The makeover team is in Bismarck re-painting the Sigl's home.

Tonya and Jon served together in the National Guard's 957 unit.

Sigl received a purple heart for his injuries, but this color tribute also means a lot.

"We are very thankful for everything everyone gives us, you always think someone deserves it more than you, it's just such a blessing, especially this time of year." says Tonya.

A mission to "spruce" up the homes of heroes--that is nearly accomplished.

The Benjamin Moore Color Care Across America initiative kicked off last month, with plans to complete a home in each state plus DC within the coming year.

Local volunteers from Advanced Coatings and House of Color also help with the transformation.

They should be finished with the Sigl home Wednesday night, just in time for Jon's arrival home.
