Green Bay Packers vs. Detroit Lions
The Green Bay Packers and WPS Health Solutions paid special tribute to Army Major Terry Mercier and his family during Monday’s Packers-Lions game for Operation Fan Mail.
Mercier, a native of Powers, Mich., in the Upper Peninsula, has been serving in the Army for 19 years. He has been deployed several times in combat operations, including two tours in Iraq, as well as a peacekeeping mission in Bosnia.
A graduate of the Army-Baylor Program, he holds two graduate degrees from Baylor University, and he currently serves at Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu as the Chief of Access Management. He also works closely with the Veterans Affairs Hospital to ensure veterans receive the medical care they need, and he spends time working with the Oahu Warrior Transition Battalion for Wounded Warriors.
A devoted Packers fan, Mercier coordinated internet capabilities while deployed to Iraq so he and his fellow soldiers could watch NFL games. Mercier attended Monday’s game with his wife, Nycole, and his daughters, Alyssa, Aryanna, and Gianna. The oldest, Alyssa, is in the initial stages of following in her father’s footsteps and becoming an Air Force Medical Corps officer. His parents, brothers, and uncle were also in attendance at Monday’s game.
