  • Your NCHS 1963 Classmates

    Posted on 9/1/18 - by Fred
    Shortly we'll be having another reunion celebrating the graduation of the Naperville Community High School Class of 1963, now fifty-five years ago. Held every five years, not a one goes by where we don't remember you as a classmate and salute your ultimate sacrifice in the service of our country.
    God Bless You.

    You were older than me but I knew your sister Katie and brother. I still remember those days; Naperville was a small town then and most everyone knew everyone in some way back then. RIP Donald and peace and prayers to your family. None of you are forgotten.

    On June 2, 1969, a U.S. Army helicopter OH-6A (tail number 67-16600) from Troop C, First Squadron, Ninth Cavalry Regiment, First Cavalry Division (Airmobile) was on a reconnaissance mission in Long Khanh Province (III Corps). During mid-morning, the aircraft came under enemy fire from an NVA bunker complex, causing it to crash and explode on impact. The three crewmen aboard, pilot 1LT Donald J. Porter, gunner SGT Paul F. Weber, and observer PFC Warren F. Brown, suffered fatal injuries in the crash. [Taken from]
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear 1LT Donald John Porter, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter
