Green Bay Packers players Tom Crabtree, Marshall Newhouse and Ryan Taylor spent their Saturday playing video games with active duty members of the military from Wisconsin.

The event took place at the Lambeau Field Atrium as part of the Pro vs. G.I. Joe program. Members of the soldiers' families were in attendance at the event, and with the players, interacted with the soldiers via video conference during and after the game. It was sponsored by WPS Health Insurance through the Operation Fan Mail program.

Pro vs. G.I. Joe is a nonprofit organization helps set up real-time Xbox Live video-game competitions between professional athletes and American troops stateside and overseas.
