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 14th season in 2020, and the 12th 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.


"While we won’t be able to honor the brave men and women of our armed forces and their families in person through Operation Fan Mail this season, we are so proud to join WPS Health Solutions in virtually recognizing veterans and active military members,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “We appreciate their sacrifice and dedication and we hope to continue thanking honorees at Lambeau Field in the future.”



"WPS Health Solutions is proud to be the long-term partner with the Packers on a program like Operation Fan Mail," said Scott Kowalski, WPS Executive Vice President, Marketing and Communications.

"Through our Military and Veterans Health division, WPS provides benefits administration for millions of active-duty military, veterans, and their families. We are also committed to helping veterans' groups in our community. For the 12th straight year, Operation Fan Mail is a chance for WPS to join the Packers in expressing appreciation to the men and women of the U.S. military for their commitment to defending freedom and their sacrifices for our nation. We look forward to another exciting season of Packers football as we support our armed forces."


The Packers and WPS Health Solutions are asking interested families, or friends of eligible families, to submit an essay, through this form, on why a particular family should be saluted.

Families intended for recognition are those that have a member serving on active duty or a member who is a veteran. The family member can be a spouse, mother, father, son, daughter, or sibling. 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.
