Chief Terrell Horne, KIA

I’ve often admired the Coast Guard, they have a challenging mission and are patient with both the civilians they rescue and the criminals they apprehend. But when I read Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Terrell Horne III was killed by a drug smuggler, I got angry. The Halibut (a patrol cutter) was rammed by a drug boat and the Chief received a mortal head wound. The sole good news is that they caught the murderers.
