From the football field to Fort Riley...Green Bay Packer Aaron Kampman suited up in Army green for a tour of some military training.

Soldiers from Fort Riley welcomed Kampman, a pro bowl defensive end as he visited some of the sites where soldiers trained for wartime situations.

"Being able to visit our service men and women in different areas different branches is great, alot of these soldiers are going down range really soon to be able to see their sacrifice that's involved.. the strength ...to just say thank you,"says Kampman.

Kampman also spoke at Fort Riley's national prayer luncheon about his religous faith and where it comes from.

Kampman says, "my faith in the Lord is my motivation to play hard, the bible says whatever you do with all your heart is for the Lord and not for man and so I think that's the ultimate call to play and actually be an example of someone that plays in an extremely intense manner because I'm working, playing for a higher being."

"Everybody looks up to him not only because he's a leader as a football player, but as a man and as a spiritual leader on his team, we wanted to bring that same message here for our troops," says LTC Chaplain Brent Causey, Fort Riley
