J.R. Martinez

The All My Children actor and Army veteran inspired the whole country when he won Dancing With the Stars after surviving major burns over 34 percent of his body and having to re-learn how to walk following a 2003 strike on his military Humvee. After the life-threatening incident, Martinez traveled the country delivering motivational speeches to other injured veterans.
