JR Martinez Shout Out

Posted on Nov 22 2011 - 9:30am by Tim Eyre

Yesterday I wrote about sharing Thanksgiving with family members who can’t attend in person, especially the ones serving our country in the military overseas.  My wife got me into watching So You Think You Can Dance and even Dancing with the Stars, so I’ve been following the amazing and inspirational JR Martinez. Hey, what can I say, his partner Karina Smirnoff is not exactly ugly! Anyway, he enlisted in the Army and was deployed to Iraq. His Humvee was blown up and he was almost burned to death.  He’s had over 30 surgeries, but you always see a smile on his face.

So here’s to you JR. You sir are a living, breathing, walking and dancing inspiration!!  Good luck tonight and take home that mirrorball trophy!
