Packers salute Army National Guard Chief Warrant Officer 2 Trevor Klock for Operation Fan Mail


The Green Bay Packers and WPS Health Solutions paid a special tribute to Wisconsin National Guard Chief Warrant Officer 2 Trevor Klock during Saturday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers for “Operation Fan Mail.”

Operation Fan Mail, the program that recognizes military families and veterans at every Packers home game, celebrates its 15th season this year.

Klock, a native of Sun Prairie, Wis., began his military service as a cargo specialist in the U.S. Army Reserve from 2004 to 2007, where he was stationed at Ft. Sheridan, Illinois. Wanting to deploy, he was upgraded to active duty status and reclassified as an infantryman. He served three years on active duty, spending one year deployed to Afghanistan as a sniper team leader.

He completed his military service in 2010, but found he missed the military and wanted to continue serving. In 2014, he joined the Wisconsin Army National Guard, before moving with his family to Alabama so he could attend flight school. They returned to Wisconsin in 2017, where Klock now flies a Black Hawk helicopter with a Madison-based aviation unit.

In addition to his military service, Klock works as an airport crash rescue firefighter at Dane County Regional Airport.

In her nomination essay, Klock’s wife, Stephanie, praised his commitment to his family while balancing his career as a pilot and firefighter. They live in DeForest, Wisconsin with their son, Mason, and daughter, Penny. A longtime Packers fan, Klock attended Saturday’s game with Stephanie and her brother, Justin, and Justin’s wife, Laura.

Operation Fan Mail, which began 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 brother or sister. The Packers and WPS Health Solutions will host a family or group at every 2021 home game and recognize them on the video board during pre-game activities. A total of 147 individuals, families or groups have been recognized through the program so far.

To choose families, the Packers and WPS Health Solutions are asking interested families or friends of eligible families to submit an essay of 500 words or less explaining why a particular fan should be hailed next season. Essays can be sent to Operation Fan Mail, PO Box 10628, Green Bay, WI, 54307-0628 or online at

In addition to being recognized on the field prior to the game, selected families will receive four tickets to the game and a $150 Packers Pro Shop gift card courtesy of WPS Health Solutions.
