Since his recovery, Martinez has become a highly sought-after motivational speaker. He has traveled the country speaking about his experiences to corporations, veterans groups, schools and other organizations.

In 2008, Martinez began his acting career on the Emmy Award-winning daytime drama “All My Children.” Since then, he’s appeared on numerous other shows, including as the season 13 champion on “Dancing with the Stars.”
