100-Year-Old Has Wish Granted to see the Packers

Hometown Heroes

It was a moment 100 years in the making for Army veteran Rose Skenandore Kerstetter of Oneida when she got to see the Packers take on the Vikings at Lambeau Field on September 16th. 

Local 5’s Nate Stewart interviewed Rose the previous week to hear about her military service during WWII, and later learned that the 100-year-old had never been to a Packers game. With it being the team’s 100th season, the word got out and the community responded.

The 4th H.O.O.A.H. Wisconsin (Helping Out Our American Heroes) acted fast, and was able to get Rose and her family three suite tickets to the game, at no charge. The group was founded in 2013, and specializes in organizing events for veterans across the state. They are lead by president Will Kocken, and VP Steve Westphal.

In this special Hometown Hero segment, Nate gives us a first-hand look at Rose’s first trip to Lambeau.

The suite was donated by Matthews Real Estate Investment Services, headed by Kyle Matthews – who is Clay Matthews’ brother.
