There are a myriad of ways to help American military veterans in this country. Donate frequent flier miles. Sponsor a companion dog. Care packages. Even a correspondence or, heck, a cup of coffee and a chat.

Former United States Air Force airman and Texas governor Rick Perry, however, has discovered a way that — not only have we never heard before — shoot, he’s created one we never even dared to dream up before.

According to the failed presidential hopeful’s social media presence, he’s going to be a contestant on the popular television show Dancing With the Stars. And it’s going to support our service members, past and present.

Guess we’ll have to wait and see as to how specifically Perry is going to aid vets during his stint on the program. Looking forward to it though.

He’s scheduled to share the stage with the following names: Olympic swimmer/embelisher Ryan Lochte, retired football wideout Calvin Johnson, Vanilla Ice and old Brady Brunch star Maureen McCormick (Marcia).

By the way, Perry is prolific on Twitter/Instagram, etc. — and worth the follow.

Here’s a post he put on the IG just the other day:

Everything’s bigger in Texas. Just not the dogs, necessarily.
