Jonathon Schwalm, El Dorado Springs Marine who was wounded in Afghanistan in February, was interviewed on the Heroes for the Holidays edition of Exteme Home Make Over which aired on ABC Channel 33 Monday evening and will air again at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 16, in the first hour of the two-hour program.
Jonathon, son of Jay Schwalm and Karen Schwalm, is “in pretty good shape,” according to his proud father who told the Sun about the program. Jonathon still has back problems and his future with the military is “up in the air.”
The family featured in the segment is that of Shilo Harris who was severely burned months before Jonathon was wounded and went back to the hospital in Germany where he was also treated. That’s where Jonathon was interviewed. Coincidentally, Shilo (Rooster) Harris, from Texas, was one of the four Wounded Warriors who were guests of Horse Creek Hunt Club at Osiris in 2011.
