A Marine family in Beafort, Staff Sgt. Bill Dickinson, his wife, India, and their five children, were chosen as a finalist for "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition", an ABC show in which families in need are given new, custom-built replacement homes.
The Dickinsons found out they were finalists Jan. 11 at a surprise teleconference joining India Dickinson and her husband, who is deployed to Afghanistan and scheduled to return in May.
The family's new home is scheduled to be revealed this afternoon, possibly between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.
