## FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ##
GREEN BAY, WI. – The Green Bay Packers and WPS Health Solutions paid special tribute to Halli Stewart and her family during Sunday’s Packers-Cowboys game for ‘Operation Fan Mail.’
Stewart, originally from Racine, Wis., enlisted in the U.S. Army as a combat medic in 1995 and eventually discovered her love and passion for education as a combat lifesaver instructor.
During her military career, she completed her medical training at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas, and also was stationed at Fort Lewis in Washington, and Fort Knox in Kentucky. As a medic, she provided medical support for a cavalry squadron, and as an instructor, she provided first aid and CPR training to military personnel who were not in the medical field.
She served in the U.S. Army until 2000, and soon went back to school, earning her bachelor’s degree from UW-Parkside. She then began working as a high school reading teacher in Racine and soon earned her master’s degree from Alverno College.
In 2015, Stewart received the Pat Tillman Scholarship, designed for active duty service members, veterans and their spouses, which is helping her fund her studies as she pursues a Ph.D. at UW-Milwaukee.
Stewart also works as an instructional coordinator in the Racine Unified School District. She attended Sunday’s game with her son, Noah, father, Joe, and partner, Erica.
Operation Fan Mail, which debuted in 2007, is designed to recognize families with a member who is on active duty. The Packers and WPS Health Solutions will host a family at each 2016 home game and recognize them on the field during pregame activities. A total of 93 individuals or families have been recognized through the program thus far.
To choose families, the Packers and WPS Health Solutions are asking interested families, or friends of eligible families, to submit an essay, 500 words or less, on why a particular fan should be saluted. Essays can be sent to: Operation Fan Mail, P.O. Box 10628, Green Bay, WI, 54307-0628 or submitted online at packers.com/gameday/gameday_promotions/operation_fan_mail.
In addition to being recognized on-field prior to the game, selected families receive four tickets to the game. Families intended for recognition are those that have a member serving on active duty. The family member can be a spouse, mother, father, son, daughter or sibling.
