Little Dave Porter was a very good friend to everyone that really knew him.  Dave was located on a mountain top just outside of Lancing, Tennessee  in early 2009 and we told him about the Airborne Maintenance Technician Association (AMTA).  Dave immediately joined the AMTA as a LIFETIME MEMBER because of his love for his many, many United States Air Force friends.  Dave was unable to make the reunion in 2009 due to unforeseen reasons, but every AMT around the country that knew Dave has always cherished his sincere friendship.  Little Dave Porter will always remain in the hearts of his USAFSS friends and will always be missed.  God bless you Dave, and God bless your family.........
