J.R. Martinez & Karina Smirnoff Honor Veterans With Dance Lessons (VIDEO)

JR Martinez Honors VeteransIt was a very special Veterans Day for U.S. Army veteran J.R. Martinez. The 'Dancing With the Stars' frontrunner took some time out of his hectic training schedule to spend the day with a few lucky vets. With the help of his 'DWTS' pro partner, Karina Smirnoff, Martinez honored his fellow veterans with dance lessons.

Joseph Gallagher, Linda Bates, Jennifer Boman, Daniel Lennon and Lorena Alvarez learned the cha cha cha, a fast-paced dance Martinez and Smirnoff have yet to take on in the competition.

"We think this would be very therapeutic for a lot of troops and a lot of families," Martinez said. "This might be something we'll think about doing later down the road."

"It's fun," Smirnoff added. "[Dance] takes your mind off of everything else. In the moment you're doing something as a team, so it brings people closer together."
