I guess winning the Mirror Ball Trophy on the latest season of Dancing With The Stars is some serious business — because season thirteen winner J.R. Martinez was just invited to the Pentagon!
The Iraq War Veteran received an invitation from Defense Secretary Leon Panetta on Friday, who asked the DWTS champ to visit the Pentagon and meet with him in person. Wow!
The Hollywood Reporter revealed that the Defense Secretary penned a note of congratulations to J.R. The note read, “Your strength and spirit captivated the nation, and your victory sends a strong message about the strength and resilience of our wounded warriors.”
Reportedly, while he’s in the Washington, D.C. area, he will also address thousands of active and retired troops.
Nice! Congratulations to J.R.!
