A fundraiser is scheduled for Friday at a Redondo Beach restaurant for the family of Chief Petty Officer Terrell Horne III, killed Sunday during a counter-drug operation off the coast of Southern California.
The fundraiser will be at Redondo Beach Restaurant, Malibu Fish Grill, 725 N. Pacific Coast Hwy. in Redondo Beach. The fundraiser is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The 34-year-old Horne, described by colleagues as a "loyal friend" with a "true sense of leadership," was killed Sunday when his vessel was rammed by a small boat near Santa Cruz Island.
Two Mexican nationals have since been charged with Horne’s death.
For those who cannot attend Friday's fundraiser, the Coast Guard Foundation is also collecting donations.
