NRCA member donates materials for veteran’s home Time:2020/11/27 11:08:00 Hit:97


NRCA member ABC Supply Co. Inc., Beloit, Wis., recently sponsored a home renovation for a veteran and his family, completing its fourth and final “Military Makeover” of 2020. The current season of “Military Makeover” premiered Nov. 20.

The latest veteran to receive a free home remodel with help from the TV show is Cpl. Jacob Tabora and his family in Texas. Tabora served as a tank gunner at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms, Calif. During training before deployment to Iraq, a malfunctioning round exploded inside Tabora’s tank and covered more than half his body with second- and third-degree burns.

After five years in recovery, Tabora started to feel like himself but still suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. He has remained resilient and since his recovery has completed his degree in criminal justice from the University of Texas at San Antonio and started a family with his wife, Ceanna. They have two sons and one daughter.

“Jacob’s service to our country as a Marine and his perseverance during his recovery is inspirational,” said Mike Jost, COO of ABC Supply. “We are proud to support him and his family by assisting in the renovation of their home.”

ABC Supply donated doors and Norandex eXtreme Series 8000 windows. Lopez Glass donated its time to help install these materials.

The Tabora family’s “Military Makeover” season airs on the Lifetime network. The episode also will be available at
