Packers bring back Operation Fan Mail for 12th season to honor military members

GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Operation Fan Mail is back for the Packers for its 12th season. The program is designed to honor families with a member who is on active duty, or a member who is a veteran. At every home game the Packers will host a family and recognize the members on the field during pregame activities.

A total of 107 families have been saluted during the past ten seasons.

The Packers 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 or submitted online.

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.
