Jewel, 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition''Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' (Fri., 8PM ET on ABC) took a break from building houses for families in need to tackle another worthy cause. Taking advantage of their new Friday time slot, the show was perfectly poised to address Veterans Day, and they did so with a star-studded fundraising event co-hosted by Ty Pennington and Jewel.

The special looked back at veterans and military families 'Extreme Makeover' has helped over the years, and shed a spotlight on modern veterans returning to a difficult economic climate, emphasizing the skills their military training makes them well suited for in civilian life.

While many Americans are struggling to find jobs, veterans are finding it even more difficult, with unemployment rates above the national average. By raising awareness of this, and of their continued value to this country, 'Extreme Makeover' is making sure these often unsung heroes are remembered on this holiday, and every other day of the year.
