I served under Admiral Horne for 3 1/2 years at COMINEWARCOM. He was the strongest advocate for Mine Warfare that community ever had. He was fearless and never backed down from spreading his Mine Warfare message. While some may have questioned his approach at times, there was never any doubt concerning his sincerity and dedication to his task. I was privileged to have known and worked with him.

Fond memories of playing tennis with Chuck on the Charleston Navy Base courts in the 1980s---always competitive but lots of fun! A true gentleman and patriot. Condolences to the family.

Admiral Horne was the best part of my day when he would call us at Belva's Flower Shop. He was so full of love and kindness. He sent flowers all the time to show his appreciation to others. We will always be remembered and forever be in my heart.
