Requiem for a veteran: Bob Porter

Bob Porter was a veteran who was proud of his country, his time in service (2 tours in Vietnam), and who sought refuge in our local veterans stand down. He made friends and became part of the volunteer community. He wasn't famous or high profile.

Bob was just a regular guy who died suddenly and unexpectedly two weeks ago. He will be honored at stand down this year in October when the organizers dedicate the weekend to him. He was an inspiration to many and will be missed by many people.
