During the break between the first and second quarter, Derek Gagne was recognized for his service and sacrifice during the war in Iraq as a continuation of Military Appreciation Night.
Gagne, a member of the Wounded Warrior Project and a Michigan Army National Guard veteran, was deployed from 2006 to 2007 in Operation Iraqi Freedom as a member of the 46th Military Police Battalion.
While on patrol as a gunner in January 2007, Gagne's Humvee was hit by an improvised explosive device. The driver of the Humvee was killed in action, while Gagne and his truck commander suffered multiple severe injuries, which included the loss of Gagne's right leg from the knee down.
"It was a great honor to be invited onto the field to receive recognition for serving our country," he said. "I couldn't believe how loud the crowd was, and I could tell it was very heartfelt and (sincere)."
Gagne enjoyed watching the game from the field with Staff Sgt. Joseph Garvie, CMU National Guard Liaison, who was deployed with Gagne.
