Operation Fan Mail, the program that recognizes military families and veterans at each Packers home game, will mark its 18th season in 2024, and the second year presented by Network Health.

The program, which debuted in 2007, is designed to honor those who are on active duty or are veterans of the military, and their families. The Packers and Network Health will host a family at each 2024 home game and recognize them on the field during pregame activities. A total of 206 families have been saluted since 2007.

"Recognizing our Operation Fan Mail honorees and their families on the field prior to kickoff is always such a special part of gameday," said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. "We are looking forward to honoring these brave men and women for their sacrifices. We appreciate the opportunity to thank them for their service at Lambeau Field."

"Partnering with the Green Bay Packers supports Network Health's mission of creating healthy and strong Wisconsin communities," said Network Health Chief Administrative Officer Penny Ransom. "The Packers have a long tradition of excellence and performance, something Network Health stands behind. With Operation Fan Mail, we honor those in our communities who exhibit excellence and performance throughout their lives. We are grateful for our military service members and through this sponsorship, we're able to show our appreciation."

To choose families, the Packers and Network Health are asking interested families, or friends of eligible families, to submit an essay, 500 words or less, on why a particular fan should be saluted this season.

Essays can be sent to Operation Fan Mail, P.O. Box 10628, Green Bay, WI, 54307-0628 or online at Families intended for recognition are those that have a member of their family serving on active duty, or a member of their family who is a veteran. The family member can be a spouse, mother, father, son, daughter or sibling.

In addition to being recognized on the video boards prior to the game, selected families will receive four tickets to the game courtesy of Network Health.
