On this Veterans Day, let us pause to give honor to those who have served our country in the armed forces. I am a great admirer of wounded veteran J. R. Martinez, who was on the defunct soap opera, All My Children and still dancing as of this post, on Dancing with the Stars. Mr. Martinez at 19 years of age suffered burns over 40% of his body when the Humvee he was driving hit a landmine in Iraq. The burns have altered his physical appearance, but, his facial scarring seems to evaporate after seeing him in action. He has such a contagious smile and an upbeat personality. God bless him.
Here are the veteran and burn causes that he supports:
