WPS Health Solutions and its affiliates have partnered with the Green Bay Packers to present Operation Fan Mail for 11 football seasons. The program started 12 years ago, in 2007, so we’ve been involved from almost the very beginning.
Operation Fan Mail is a special program that recognizes active-duty U.S. military personnel and veterans at each Packers home game. Through our partnership with the Packers, we’ve honored 117 servicemembers over the years. Army, Navy, Marine Corps, National Guard, Air Force, Coast Guard—we’ve honored patriots from all branches. We’ve honored siblings, twins, Purple Heart recipients, and even an astronaut! You can read all of their stories online at OperationFanMail.com.
A winning experience
It’s a neat experience for those who are honored. At the legendary Lambeau Field, they get to walk out onto the field during the pregame activities, wave to thousands of Packers fans, and smile great big smiles. The honorees each receive four tickets to the game plus a $150 gift card for the Packers Pro Shop, courtesy of WPS. They get honored, entertained, and spoiled with green and gold souvenirs.
And that’s only right. Our enlisted men and women sacrifice a lot to keep the rest of us safe and secure. You may have heard this before, but freedom isn’t free. Showing them a little respect is the least we can do. And you know you can help us with that!
Call for entries
Nominate a military person from your family today. It can be your spouse, parent, child, or sibling. There’s a link at the bottom of the OperationFanMail.com home page you can use to get to the online submission page. All you have to do is write a short letter (we call it an essay, but it’s not really that formal) that describes why you think your hero should be honored at a home game. Once you have written a page or so (500 words or less, please), you can click the Submit button and send it on its way to the Packers.
If you’re not comfortable sending in your nomination essay online, you can mail it the old-fashioned way:
P.O. Box 10628
Green Bay, WI 54307-0628
Not everyone can be chosen, but we appreciate all the submissions we receive, just as we sincerely appreciate the service of our military personnel and veterans.
