    I am deployed to Afghanistan for 1 year and am hoping to get your help to be able to view Packer games. Here we have American Forces Network (AFN) and they air the games based on how many votes the games get at the AFN Facebook Page. If you are a Facebook member, please "like" the AFN Page and please vote for the Packer game each week.

    Thank you so much for helping and please ask your fellow Packer fans to vote also. It's difficult enough being so far from home and the Packer games at least make it a little more tolerable.
    Thank you & GO PACK!,

    Thanks Drew but I can't find where my PM's are. Sorry. Maybe being too new of a member I haven't earned the privilege of PM's yet?

    Thanks robdog. Wish there was a better way to get the message out so the Packer fans here have a better chance of seeing the games. Most folks here are from big cities and out vote us on the AFN site. I know we probably have more fans around the nation but it's difficult getting the word out to them.
    Thanks if you guys can do anything to help!

    Thanks LL! Been over here for 3 months and definitely miss my family but also miss my Black Lab named Lambeau! I'm going home for R&R in about 3 weeks and am really going to try to get to the Bronco's/Packer game. I won't be able to go home for Christmas so that game will be my Christmas present for this year! Thanks to you all if you can help with the voting!

    As you wish, Sir! Anything for you guys! I'm going to vote and I put it on my own Facebook page as well! Good luck and stay safe. Hopefully when you come home, a trip to Lambeau to see a game live will be in order!

    May not end up in anything but I sent emails to a few of the sports writers for the Journal Sentinal and the Green-Bay Press Gazette asking if there was any way they could help get the word out for you guys.

    Good news! Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel emailed me back. He said " Thank you so much for sharing this with me Jake. I'll get on this." not sure what he's going to do but he responded rather quickly and his message seemed interested. I've yet to hear from Kareem Copeland with the Green Bay press gazette. Anyone else have any ideas of who else we could get in contact with to help out?
