Of all the ships in the United States Navy, only one has a flight deck named Lambeau Field.

The USS Green Bay, which was commissioned in 2009, was featured on NBC’s Today show on Friday morning in its weekly “Together We Make Football” segment. NBC Sports’ Josh Elliott talks with Commanding Officer Captain Kristy McCallum and other members of the crew about the special connection they have with the Green Bay Packers.

Watch the full segment here.

The Packers will pay tribute to the USS Green Bay and all United States veterans on Sunday night when they host the Chicago Bears for their Salute to Service game.
