Some Wisconsin armories are in line for fitness equipment upgrades thanks to Green Bay Packers fans.
In November, the NFL hosted a “Salute to Service” program at its stadiums. Fans were asked to go online and create a digital salute for the military on behalf of their favorite team. The three NFL cities with the most salutes then earned rewards for their selected military communities, provided by USAA.

As the Packers were one of the top three finishers, the Wisconsin Army National Guard says several armories across Wisconsin will be receiving fitness equipment upgrades.
Joining the Packers in the top three were the Detroit Lions and Houston Texans. The Michigan National Guard is set to receive equipment upgrades at Camp Grayling’s fitness center, while the Texas Air National Guard will receive a jogging trail at Ellington Field Joint Reserve Base.
