Winner of 'Dancing with the Stars' to appear at builders' show

Iraq war veteran J.R. Martinez will make an appearance at the NAHB builders' show.

Iraq war veteran J.R. Martinez will make an appearance at the NAHB builders' show.

The winner of "Dancing with the Stars" and Iraq war veteran J.R. Martinez will make an appearance at the National Association of Home Builders International Builders' Show to talk about his work with Operation Finally Home.

Operation Finally Home is a charitable program that provides new homes for injured soldiers who can't afford a home or the relocation cost when they return home from deployment.

The annual builders' show will host more than 50,000 home builders, remodelers, developers, architects and suppliers to the home building industry, which makes the show the largest light construction event in the world.

Martinez was injured during the war in Iraq, sustaining burns on more than 40 percent of his body when the left front tire of his vehicle hit a land mine.

"J.R. Martinez won the hearts of many viewers with his can-do attitude and spirit even before he won the dance competition," said NAHB Chairman Bob Nielsen, a home builder and developer in Reno, Nevada. "Having the opportunity to hear his inspiring story is another great reason to attend the builders' show."

Early-bird pricing to attend the show, which will be held from February 8 to 11, ends January 6.
