United States Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta has invited JR Martinez to the Pentagon!

JR is the veteran/actor who won this season of Dancing With the Stars ( a very deserving win at that).

After suffering intense burns during his time in Iraq, JR has made an example of triumph over tragedy with his high spirits and determination. Because of that, he won the hearts of all of us — including Panetta!

Panetta called JR to praise him for the great job he did on the show:

Over the course of this competition, your spirit captivated the nation and your victory sends a powerful message about the strength and resilience of our wounded warriors.

The details of the Pentagon meeting are, as of right now, a secret, but we can only hope JR will be honored for his heroic representation.

As we previously discussed, JR will also be co-hosting this year's CNN's Heroes with Anderson Cooper.
