Terry and Tony DeWeese are identical twins and have spent their entire lives together. Once they graduate from Hallsville High School, Tony and Terry will be apart for the first time in their lives. Terry will enlist in the US Marine Corps and attend basic training at Camp Pendleton in June, and Tony will attend college in Kansas. Tony has Cerebral Palsy, preventing him from enlisting with his brother.
Producers Stuart Palley and Emily Kaiser bring us this story, as part of KBIA and the Columbia Missourian’s My Life, My Town project.
