This Thanksgiving, the nationally syndicated entertainment news program, “Extra” is teaming up with Prank It Fwd to give one deserving veteran a life-changing surprise that he will never forget!

Jonathan Arneson is a 24-year-old Army Sergeant from Torrance, California who came home from his tour of duty in Iraq financially strapped and unable to find a stable job. Jonathan was dealt a second cruel blow when he lost the man who raised him, his Vietnam veteran grandfather Gary to cancer. Just when Jonathan thought his world was collapsing, “Extra” stepped in to turn things around.

With the help of his girlfriend Gabrielle as an accomplice, the show lured Jonathan to Universal Studios Hollywood, the home of “Extra,” thinking he’s there for a job interview. That’s where Jonathan got the shock of his life: First Lady Michelle Obama, “Extra’s” Mario Lopez and actor Michael Weatherly of “NCIS” delivered one surprise after another to help get Arneson’s life back on track. It left the brave veteran speechless and in tears.

Tune in to “Extra” on Wednesday, November 26th to see this unforgettable and meaningful story about giving back this holiday season! Find out more at
