NewDay USA Chairman, retired Rear Admiral Thomas Lynch, and his team of employees went to Florida to build a memorial garden in honor of First Mate Hixon.
 
“First Mate Hixon’s bravery shows how veterans continue to serve with valor long after they’ve left the service. It’s been an honor and privilege to serve his family,” said Lynch.
 
Hixon’s family still lives in the house that Chris and his wife, Debra, shared for 28 years which was Debra’s childhood home. Debra has been a schoolteacher for 30 years and was the daughter of a Navy veteran.
 
There will be 10 “Military Makeover” episodes featuring the Hixons beginning Feb. 14. Segments will air on Militarymakeover.tv, as well as nationally on Lifetime Television and in national broadcast syndication. The segment will stream 24 hours a day on the http://militarymakeover.tv/ Web site.
 
NewDay USA is a partner with a number of community service projects such as “Military Makeover” because volunteerism plays a significant role among the NewDay USA workforce.
 
The company’s philanthropic arm, the NewDay USA Foundation, has provided over $2 million in four-year scholarships for JROTC military high schools across the nation to the children of fallen and disabled military veterans. The Foundation contributes five percent of its net income to military friendly organizations and is a key partner of the Medal of Honor Foundation, the USO, Boulder Crest Retreat for Military and Veteran Wellness.
