Washington Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche will take part in the 2013 USO Holiday Tour led by Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey. Joining him will be Grammy award winning singer/songwriter Bridget Kelly, former New England Patriots offensive tackle and three-time Super Bowl champion Matt Light, actor/comedian Thomas "Nephew Tommy" Miles, stars of A&E's hit reality show "Duck Dynasty" Jep and Willie Robertson and former correspondent on NBC's "The Voice" Alison Haislip.

General Dempsey will lead the group on a seven-day, four-country tour to five military venues. This trip will mark the first USO tour for LaRoche, Kelly, Light, the Robertson brothers and Haislip. Miles, who is a USO tour veteran, also traveled on General Dempsey's first-ever holiday tour as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in 2011.

The USO has worked with the Office of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff since 2000. Last December, General Dempsey led his second annual Holiday Tour as Chairman, which included Nationals pitchers Ross Detwiler and Craig Stammen. Additional details regarding the Nationals military outreach are also attached.
