Packers, WPS Health Insurance present 'Operation Fan Mail' for 2014

Posted Aug 6, 2014

Program recognizes military families on Lambeau Field in pregame

Operation Fan Mail, the program that recognizes military families at each Packers home game, will mark its eighth season in 2014, and the sixth year it has been presented by WPS Health Insurance.

The program, which debuted in 2007, is designed to honor families with a member who is on active duty. The Packers and WPS Health Insurance will host a family at each 2014 home game and recognize them on the field during pregame activities. A total of 65 families have been saluted during the past six seasons.

“We are honored to have the privilege of recognizing military families for an eighth year,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “These brave men and women, along with their families, make countless sacrifices for our freedom, and we’re happy to welcome them to Lambeau Field and salute them with our fans.”

“Operation Fan Mail brings much-deserved recognition for our military families, and we are proud to partner with the Green Bay Packers in sponsoring this outstanding program,” said Ellen Foley, senior vice president of corporate communications at WPS Health Insurance. “It’s wonderful to see the selected military personnel honored on the field before the games. And it’s very powerful to read the stories of these dedicated men and women, including the sacrifices they have made for our freedom, and the support they have received from their families,” she said.

The Packers and WPS Health Insurance are asking interested families, or friends of eligible families, to submit an essay, 500 words or less, on why a particular family should be saluted. Essays can be sent to: Operation Fan Mail, P.O. Box 10628, Green Bay, WI, 54307-0628. Submit online at: http://nfl.packers.com/gameday/gameday_promotions/operation_fan_mail/

Families intended for recognition are those that have a member serving on active duty. The family member can be a spouse, mother, father, son, daughter or sibling. Purple Heart recipients are also eligible for recognition, even if they cannot return to active service status.

In addition to being recognized on-field prior to the game, selected families will receive four tickets to the game and a $150 Packers Pro Shop gift card courtesy of WPS.
