Operation Fan Mail, the program that recognizes military families and veterans at every Packers home game, will mark its 16th season in 2022, and the 14th year it has been featured by WPS Health Solutions or its affiliates.
The program, which began in 2007, is designed to honor families with a member who is active duty, or a member who is a veteran. The Packers and WPS Health Solutions will host a family at every 2022 home game and recognize members on the field during pre-game activities. A total of 147 families have been recognized over the past 14 seasons.
“We are proud to once again recognize our Operation Fan Mail winners and their families on the pitch ahead of kickoff this year,” Packers Chairman and CEO Mark Murphy said. “We appreciate the opportunity to salute these remarkable men and women to thank them for their service, sacrifice and bravery.”
“WPS Health Solutions is proud to be the Packers’ long-term partner in the Operation Fan Mail program,” said Megan Willauer, WPS Director of Events and Strategic Partnerships. “Through our WPS Military and Veterans Health division, WPS provides benefits administration for millions of active duty military personnel, veterans and their families. We also support various veterans groups in communities where our business. For the 14th consecutive year , Operation Fan Mail is a chance for WPS to join the Packers in expressing our gratitude to the men and women of our United States military for their commitment to freedom and their sacrifices for our nation. We look forward to another exciting season of Packers football as we support our armed forces.”
