When everyone tunes into Sunday Night Football to watch the Dallas Cowboys take on the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend, they'll not only be treated to good game, but also will witness a poignant tribute.

The Dallas Morning News reports the Cowboys will be hosting a First Responders Appreciation Night for fallen police officers and fireman. The events will take place during the pregame and at halftime.

According to the news provider, the pregame will honor Craig Story and Jillian Smith, two police officers from Arlington, as well as firefighter Don Hogg. These individuals were chosen because they were the most recent first responders to perish who were from the area. During this tribute, a highway patrol helicopter will flyover the stadium, while police and firefighting vehicles will be on the field.

During the halftime presentation, the news provider reports there will be a bagpipe and drum band. Performers from across the Lone Star State will take part in this part of the ceremony.

The game is not the only way the Cowboys are showing their support to those who serve our country. According to the sports team's website, there will be an Armed Forces Rally Day on Saturday, which will last from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. The event will be fun for the whole family, as former Cowboys Mel Renfro, Leon Lett and Ed Jones will all be making appearances to sign autographs. Additionally, the Dallas Cowboys' famous cheerleaders will be on hand to mingle, and there will even be an appearance from Santa.

There will also be a lot of activities for kids to partake in during the rally. The website reports that some of the events are geared toward the Armed Forces, including a color guard, a life size replica of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and a re-enlistment ceremony.

According to Mid Cities Online, both officers Story and Smith were killed during active duty in 2010. Story died in a two-vehicle crash while he was enforcing traffic. He was on his motorcycle when a bus crashed into him, killing him upon impact. Smith died when responding to a report call. The news provider reports when she was speaking to the victim and her 11-year-old daughter, the suspect returned with a gun and began shooting. Smith shielded the young girl, saving her life.
