Volunteers will continue today setting up flip cards in Lambeau Field in preparation for a special military tribute before the Green Bay Packers-Arizona Cardinals kickoff Sunday.

Fans will hold up the cards to turn the stadium into a ring of stars and stripes and a message of "thank you military, thank you veterans" during the national anthem, the Packers organization said.

The presentation is part of the NFL's "Salute to Service" celebration in honor of Veteran's Day, which is observed Nov. 12. The card stunt will be used at seven other NFL games from Nov. 11-15.

USAA, which provides financial services to military members, is the first-ever military appreciation sponsor of the NFL and helped the league develop the project.

About 350 volunteers are expected to help set up the cards, and the process began Friday.
