Wisconsin National Guard, Oshkosh Corporation To Join Packers In Salute
The Green Bay Packers, along with the Wisconsin National Guard and Oshkosh Corporation, will offer a multifaceted "Military Appreciation Night" in honor of our nation's military at Monday night's game against the Baltimore Ravens.
The salute will culminate at halftime when four individuals and their families, two from the Wisconsin Army National Guard and two from the Wisconsin Air National Guard, will be recognized on the field with a brief ceremony that will end with a short volley of fireworks.
Pregame activities will feature the two Rumble With A Cause motorcycles on display to fans in the Lambeau Field Atrium, one with Army styling and one with Marine styling. The fundraiser by Oshkosh Corporation and the Armed Forces Foundation is helping raise money for service members and their families in time of need, and features a chance to win one of two unique Harley-Davidson® Fat Boy® motorcycles. A $10 donation enters individuals in the sweepstakes, with tickets available in the parking lot and in the Atrium. More information about the program is available online at www.rumblewithacause.org. No donation or purchase is necessary to enter.
Also, an Oshkosh Corporation M-ATV will be on display in the parking lot in the fan walkway adjacent to the Tundra Tailgate Zone, along with a Wisconsin Air National Guard flight simulatoravailable for fans to experience and interactive football-related activities, including a football toss and Sony PlayStation games.
Inside the stadium, TundraVision will broadcast video greetings from Wisconsin National Guard members in Iraq and Afghanistan offering well wishes to the Packers and fans at Lambeau Field. Additionally, the national anthemwill performed by Army Sfc. Jeffrey Vanderlin, a Green Bay native who will be retiring in 2010 from the military.
Fans are encouraged to experience the evening's different offerings and join in the salute to our service men and women and their families.
