Packers ‘Tailgate Tour’ visits veterans at Tomah VA

Some Green Bay Packers players and staff stopped at the Tomah VA hospital Wednesday morning to meet with veterans.

The surprise visit came as part of the Packers Tailgate Tour.

Several former Packers players, along with President and CEO Mark Murphy signed autographs.

One Packer alum says while it is special to connect with fans it is even more special to meet with veterans.

“They’ve done so much for us, and given so much for us, so for us to come back and I mean, what we’re doing is minute to what they’ve done for us. It’s pretty awesome to be able to give anything.”

The Tailgate Tour also stopped in Sparta.
