Rent-A-Center Joins Forces with "Military Makeover with Montel"

Coming Together to Help

“Military Makeover With Montel” is a series that offers a helping hand to military families and their loved ones. The show enlists the help of designers, contractors, and suppliers to transform the homes and lives of military families across the country. Rent-A-Center is a proud sponsor of the Military Makeover team. We are honored to work alongside Montel to provide these families with premium appliances and furniture to help veterans have a new beginning in a renovated home.

Why Rent-A-Center Cares

We greatly respect the sacrifices that military veterans, and their families, have made for our country, and highly value the characteristics that military veterans embody. We are proud to offer career opportunities to many military veterans after their time in service and proud to be able to lend an extra hand with the Military Makeover program.

Meet Our Military Veterans - Joey and Joy Pryor

Pryor Family with Military Makeover Hosts

This season of Military Makeover, we are honoring not only one, but two deserving military veterans based in Charlotte, North Carolina.  

Joey Pryor served a total of thirteen years in the Army, including three tours in Afghanistan. During a mission to locate and remove explosives buried underground, his team’s radar was able to pick up three explosive devices, but failed to pick up a fourth. The explosive device detonated directly under the team’s vehicle. Amis the chaos of flying debris, Joey was able to ensure the rest of his team was safe before finding safety. After his many years of service and bravery, he was honored with a Purple Heart, as well as numerous service medals and combat action badges. 

His wife, Joy Pryor, served her country in the U.S. Air Force. She enlisted at the age of 22 where she completed Basic Training at Keesler Air Base in Mississippi. From there, she continued to advance her career at various stations across the United States as a Prevision Measurement Laboratory Technician. Joy was dedicated to helping those who dedicated their lives to protecting our country.

Joey and Joy met in High School, but it was not until reconnecting later in life that their romance blossomed. Both being military veterans and suffering many physical and emotional after effects associated with service and sacrifice, the couple was able to understand each other deeply. As a result of their shared connection, they are able to support and be there for one another no matter what.  

Together, Joey and Joy have served a collective 19 years in the military. While they still suffer from PTSD and physical injuries, it has not stopped them from building a loving home for their family and pets. Rent-A-Center is honored to partner with Military Makeover to offer a token of appreciation by helping create their “forever home.”
