The good news keeps coming!

So first of all, congratulations to J.R Martinez for taking the mirror-ball trophy on Dancing with the Stars’ season 13 finale.  But wait, there’s more!? Yes there is!  Not only did the war veteran win the mirror-ball trophy, the dance extraordinaire was recently invited to the Pentagon by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta!  According to the Hollywood Reporter, Panetta has a huge respect for Martinez and says, “Your strength and spirit captivated the nation, and your victory sends a strong message about the strength and resilience of our wounded warriors.” As if that weren’t enough, Martinez received a personal invitation via phone call to visit the white house.  While in the D.C area, Martinez will be addressing a crowd of thousands of retired and active duty troops.  Congratulations once again Martinez!
