    Josh Duhamel is taking a leap to help out severely injured service members.

    The "Transformers" actor recently met up with two injured veterans in Riverside County, who jumped out of a plane as Duhamel waited below.

    The skydiving venture was filmed with 360-degree cameras and the footage will be featured in a promotional video on Duhamel’s new "Enlist Me" campaign, which aims to shed light and raise money for injured service members.

    In particular, the money will help pay for veterans on a waiting list for specially adapted smart homes to accommodate their disabilities.

    More than 200 service members are in need of smart homes.

    Duhamel told NBC 7 the cause is near to his heart.

    “It’s sort of our duty to take care of these guys when they get back,” he said. “I think these guys have literally sacrificed everything for this country.”

    Duhamel is partnering with Building for America's Bravest and GMC.
