Alec Terwiske of Dubois on Tuesday afternoon in St. Celestine Cemetery in Celestine during a memorial on the one-year anniversary of Terwiske’s death. Terwiske, 21, was killed in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, on Sept. 3, 2012, while participating in Operation Enduring Freedom. Terwiske and Lampert graduated from Northeast Dubois High School in 2010 and Lampert is a lance corporal in the Marine Corps Reserve. Thirty family members, friends and members of both the Marine Corps League and Marine Family Support Group met to remember Terwiske’s sacrifice and placed flags at his grave.
