Even as Meyer’s attention is focused on the war effort, he finds time to keep tabs on his favorite professional football team: the Green Bay Packers.

Meyer, whose parents, Donald and Hanayo Meyer, live in Neenah, is among a number of Packers fans serving in Iraq who have held tailgate parties and watched games on satellite television this season. Games that are televised at noon in Wisconsin air at 9 p.m. in Iraq.

“Ever since I was a kid, I have always loved to watch the Packers play,” Meyer said via e-mail from Iraq. “As for us Packer backers, we usually try to watch the games on satellite TV. If we cannot watch the game, we get the highlights and score off the Internet.”
