Ft Hood 5 Nov 2009 SSgt Zeigler was shot 4 times. He was sent home early from Iraq to conduct processing to become an officer when he was hit. Now Extreme Makeover changes his life and helps him heal in more ways than one. Below is a few minute clip from the show. See the entire show here.


  1. My wife and I watched the show and were moved by the humble courage that SSgt Ziegler displayed. if anyone deserved the hook up, it was him and his wife. Strangely, no mention of the Muslim that shot him. But that’s OK, there’s a special section of Hell waiting for him. Semper Fi.

  2. Mike, he was not mentioned because this was not a news show. Their job was to help him and his wife, which they did. I am glad they chose them, they desrved it.

  3. An amazing video…she has such patience and poise for such a young lady. And his courage and open nature after all he has been through…
    As a perq, I get to send this to my husband whose Cav hat is on the shelf and watch him try to hide his manly tears. Thanks for this link – what a wonderful way to start a Sunday morning.

  4. I just wanted to comment & say keep up the quality work.Thanks a lot for sharing. You have done a brilliant job. Your article is truly relevant to my study at this moment, and I am really happy to read it.
