LendUS Joins Forces with Military Makeover


The military, Veteran, and service-member community are very important to the LendUS Family of Companies; which is why LendUS will be partnering with the television show, Military Makeover on the home renovation for one Veteran and his family. In the month of December, LendUS, RPM Mortgage, American Eagle Mortgage, and the Palmetto Group will participate in the home renovation for the Burgess family in Cape Coral, Florida.

Daniel Burgess & Family

Army Staff Sergeant Daniel Burgess spent his 11-year military career between active duty and the Reserves. Toward the end of his tenure in the military, Daniel was tasked with working with local community members in locating, identifying and removing Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) left by the Taliban. In 2014 Burgess had the misfortune of stepping on a hidden IED in the Afghan desert, resulting in him losing his right leg and severely hurting his left leg. After being medically retired, Daniel has had an ongoing recovery, spending three years in Texas at the Fort Sam Houston/Brooke Army Medical Center, where his wife Genette and his two daughters Gracie and Kaylee moved in order to be closer to him. Their family’s continued support was provided by the Fisher House Foundation allowing them to stay close to the center.


Military Makeover and LendUS are now joining forces to help the Burgess Family make their current house their forever home by renovating and building accommodations to meet Daniel’s needs. Starting in December, members from LendUS, RPM Mortgage, American Eagle Mortgage, and The Palmetto Group will join together in volunteering efforts, with many of the volunteers being Veterans themselves. In addition, a LendUS advisor will be discussing the value of VA loans and lending opportunities with the entire country. 
“I am extremely proud that the LendUS family is sponsoring the next Military Makeover Family. It is our small way to show genuine care and support for a specific hero, Daniel Burgess, and his family for serving our country with valor,” says Rob Hirt, LendUS CEO.
Soon after completion of the home renovation, Military Makeover is slated to air in January 2021. Episodes can be seen on the Lifetime Network, national broadcast syndicates, and on the American Forces TV Network.
