Statement by Incoming Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) on the Death of U.S. Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Terrell Horne:


Location: Washington, DC

"My thoughts and prayers are with the United States Coast Guard and the family of Chief Petty Officer and Chief Boatswain's Mate Terrell Horne, who was killed in the line of duty protecting our homeland. Chief Horne, along with several other Coast Guard personnel were engaged in an at-sea interdiction off the coast of California on Sunday when the small inflatable boat they were operating became the target of the suspected smugglers, who rammed the small Coast Guard craft. Whether it's on our land borders or in our waters, this tragic event is a reminder of the dangers our brave men and women in uniform face every day protecting the homeland, and the sacrifices of their families."
