Packers' Aaron Jones pays visit to Patriot K-9s of Wisconsin

WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- Packers player Aaron Jones visited Patriot K-9s of Wisconsin in Wausau. 

The running back comes from a military family. Both of his parents and his brother served. 

Jones says his mom, who served 27 years in the Army, will be getting a service dog of her own soon.

"You know, sometimes she's by herself, so just having that dog there with you, who knows -- who knows you, kind of like your kids do, it goes a long way," said Jones. 

"I just think it's really great that a smaller organization like this can be boosted by a big organization like the Green Bay Packers," said Lani Rethaber, executive director of Patriot K-9s of Wisconsin. "Having a player like Aaron Jones here means a lot."

Salute to Service bandanas are selling for $10 in the Packers Pro Shop.

Five dollars from each sale will go to Patriot K-9s and whatever number that is at the end of November will be matched by Fleet Farm.
