GREEN BAY (NBC 26) -- In honor of Veterans Day weekend, we highlight one Packer player's mission to help our country's Veterans.

Jimmy Graham, Tight End for the Packers, talks about what inspired him to be a pilot and how it connects to his passion for honoring and supporting our military Veterans and their families.

"My happiest is when I'm in a plane, at the airport, and I'm out with Veterans and just sitting there listening," said Graham. "I've been blessed with my game and my abilities on the field. It has afforded me the ability to give these experiences with the aircraft. This country gives us so much that I think it's our duty and honor to give something back."
