Sgt Martin Gardner, Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian made one lucky serviceman very proud tonight at the Marine Corps Ball in Greenville, N.C.

The E! star attended with Sgt. Martin Gardner, who was on the event planning committee and actually extended the invitation months ago. In fact, Gardner's identity was only revealed tonight once the covert op had been successfully completed.

While the soldier looked strapping in his dress uniform, his date stole the spotlight in her slinky red Roland Mouret gown.

"Just left the Marine Corps Ball," Kim tweeted after dinner. "Thanks to all of the marines I had the opportunity to meet tonight ! Thank you for all that you do!"

Kardashian, who's been shooting Kourtney & Kim Take Miami down in Florida (the new season premieres in January), was just able to squeeze the quick trip to North Carolina into her schedule.
