I was informed this evening of the death of Capt. Terhune by my friend, retired Marine stalwart Chad Ryan Russell, veteran of 3 tours in Iraq. My heart and prayers go out to both the Terhune and Whitacre families. God's Peace upon them at this time, and Bless these two Marines for their service to our country.
