Packer tailgate party planned for soldiers in Iraq
New Richmond Wisconsin 127 South Knowles Avenue 54017

Wisconsin soldiers in Iraq will enjoy a Packer tailgate party with their families next month, but they won't be coming home for it.

A volunteer group called Serving the 32nd is putting on the event Oct. 18, in which troops and their families will be connected online.

Members of the National Guard's 32nd Red Arrow Brigade will watch the Packers play the Detroit Lions from their bases.

And they'll see their families watch the game from the Alliant Energy Center in Madison.

The relatives back home will also see the troops at the same time.

TDS Telecommunications is setting up T1 broadband lines to make the connections possible.

Private family visits are also being arranged for that day, while the lines are set up.

The deadline to register is Thursday, and more information is available online at ServingThe32nd.org.
