Paying tribute.

J.R. Martinez (Brot) will appear on a special episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition on November 11. For their “Veterans Day Special,” the show will highlight the military stories they’ve featured over the years and follow up with a few of those families they’ve helped. The show will also feature an audience of active-duty service members and a live performance by Jewel.

In addition to Martinez, the episode will also include appearances by Whoopi Goldberg, George Lopez, Rachael Ray, Robin Williams and others. Net proceeds raised during the one-hour special through donations at Rise and Honor will benefit Fisher House Foundation, Hire Heroes USA, Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, USO (United Service Organizations), Volunteers of America, and Welcome Back Veterans.

“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition A Veterans Day Special” will air on ABC at 8.00 PM EST.
