A military veteran who lives on Chicago's South Side received a gift today for his service.

Veteran Mack Jones got a home makeover on Friday.

The house now has new interior painting, ceiling tiles, landscaping and other repairs.

The makeover is part of the Make a Difference Tour that's hitting 20 different cities in the U.S.

In each city volunteers are rebuilding one military veteran's home.

The tour's sponsored by Hoffman Estates-based retailer Craftsman.
