Help For Local Iraq Veteran
An effort to aid a local injured Iraq War vet is looking for help. Specialist Derek Gagne of Menominee suffered multiple injuries while on patrol in Iraq. Once back in Menominee, the two-time Purple Heart recipient bought a house that could use some work. Mark Bonovetz is heading an effort to fix up Gagne’s home. He says help is needed to make sure Gagne can get back to his everyday life. Bonovetz says he and other volunteers plan to start working on Derek Gagne’s home next week and contributions, donations and volunteers would be appreciated. If you’d like to help this local hero, call Bonovetz at (920) 639-7410.
