It looks like another “All My Children” alum will make their way over to “Army Wives”.  J.R. Martinez is the real life Wounded Warrior and former US Army Soldier who was severely burned and injured while serving in Iraq.

In true hero style he didn’t let his injuries or 28 surgeries stop him from living and he landed a part as Brot Monroe on “All My Children”.

Now Entertainment Weekly reports “The season 13 winner of DWTS  (Dancing With The Stars) will play a physical therapist who works with wounded veterans. As a former Army soldier and wounded veteran,  Martinez’ character relates to the veterans while pushing them beyond the limits of their own expectations toward recovery”.

You can catch the return of Army Wives Sunday June 24th at 10pm EST.

1 Comment on Wounded Warrior and Dancing With The Stars Champ J.R. Martinez To Guest Star on “Army Wives”

  1. I’m commenting in an effort to help promote and support service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses. Many wounded warriors are coming home, getting out of the military and jobs are very limited. Therefore many have decided to start their own businesses in an attempt to survive and support their families. In an effort to help, we have created the Wounded Warrior Directory at Please help us let others know about these businesses and this cause. Thank you!
