SoldierWhile Wake Forest, N.C., National Guardsman Spc. Michael Spivey was finishing up a deployment in Iraq, his wife Christie was busy finishing up a surprise for him — a 1,000-square-foot addition to the couple's home that includes a workshop stocked with tools and a media room with a leather couch and a great big TV.

The materials and labor were donated by local folks, some of whom crammed into the house to see Spivey's reaction to the room. He was overcome with happiness and emotion and said he would grab his wife and a Mountain Dew and watch any movie she wanted to watch.
