INDIANAPOLIS - Two Indianapolis Colts players scored big with a highly decorated Indiana veteran this week.
Colts tight end Coby Fleener and punter Pat McAfee joined forces with HH Gregg to provide U.S. Army veteran Erich Orrick with a surprise home makeover. Orrick is a Bronze Star and Purple Heart recipient who is raising two daughters.
The Colts duo gave him a trip to Chicago in recognition of his service and his work with Wish for Our Heroes, an organization that helps military men and women on active duty.
While Orrick was away, a team of volunteers spruced up the family home with new kitchen appliances, a new "man cave" and a special room for his daughters.
"It’s because of people like Erich serving our country that we are allowed to be free," Fleener said.
"He never really gets a chance to get any love in return. He is always helping other people," McAfee said.
In addition to the home renovation, McAfee and Fleener donated $5,000 to Wish for Our Heroes.
Orrick donated his previously owned furniture to another military family who lost their home in a house fire.
