About Operation Fan Mail

Operation Fan Mail, which debuted in 2007, is designed to honor families with a member who is on active duty, or a member who is a veteran. The family member can be a spouse, mother, father, son, daughter, or sibling. Operation Fan Mail marks its 16th season in 2022, and the 14th year it has been presented by WPS Health Solutions or its affiliates.

This year, the Green Bay Packers and WPS Health Solutions will virtually recognize Operation Fan Mail families on packers.com, Packers’ social media platforms, and ESPN radio. Honorees will also receive a prize package valued at $250. More than 125 individuals or families have been recognized through the program.


“We are proud to once again recognize our Operation Fan Mail honorees and their families on the field prior to kickoff this year,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “We appreciate the opportunity to salute these remarkable men and women to thank them for their service, sacrifices and bravery.”



"WPS Health Solutions is proud to be the long-term partner with the Packers on the Operation Fan Mail program,” said Megan Willauer, WPS Director of Events & Strategic Partnerships.

We look forward to another exciting season of Packers football as we support our armed forces.”
