Former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell will appear on prime time to thank a disabled Gulf War veteran for his service.

Powell will be shown meeting with former Army combat medic Jeff Cooper and his family as part of an episode of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” airing in May.

Cooper, of Jamesville, N.C. suffers from multiple sclerosis, immune disorders, a collection of symptoms commonly called Gulf War illness and is confined to a wheelchair.

Despite his pain, Cooper devotes his time to making sure veterans are recognized and has lobbied to have all vets who served in the Gulf War get a special license plate of recognition.

The Cooper family is shown living in a decaying mobile home with bad electrical wiring, a sinking roof, and a rotting wheelchair ramp. “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” decides to rebuild their home in just a week.

The Coopers are then sent on vacation to Washington, D.C., where they meet with Powell, who presents Cooper with a gift.

The Cooper family episode, which was taped in March, will air on ABC on May 3.

Other celebrities who’ve appeared on “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” include LeAnn Rimes, Jennifer Hudson and David Beckham.
