Eagles center Jason Kelce and Dietz & Watson showed their appreciation by preparing dinner for military families at the Horsham Air Guard Station on Tuesday. While it was a great way for the Eagles and Dietz & Watson to honor military families for their ongoing support and for the dedication of all veterans and active duty members, the real surprise came when deployed USO troops greeted their families shortly before the meal.

The USO servicemen who attended included TSgt Silmer Antonio Carmona and SrA Tariq Fladger. Carmona is a member of the 201st RED HORSE Squadron and was recently deployed in Southwest Asia. A father of one and an uncle of five, Carmona is currently enlisted as a heavy equipment operator and has been awarded two Army achievement medals, one Air Force achievement medal and multiple meritorious service awards. Fladger is a six-year member of the Air National Guard and was recently deployed in Afghanistan. A Philadelphia native, he and his wife have a one-year-old son.
