A video salute to former NFL player Pat Tillman will be shown at Lambeau. Tillman left the Arizona Cardinals two years ago in order to serve his country in the U.S. Army. He was killed in action in Afghanistan in April. The video will feature a remembrance by Denver quarterback Jake Plummer, a teammate of Tillman's at Arizona State and with the Cardinals.
The league also plans a 30-second TV message that will be shown during all game telecasts. The message salutes military families and was produced in conjunction with the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Oscar-winning actor Gene Hackman, a former U.S. Marine, narrates the message.
