Another year has passed and you are still admired and respectfully remembered in the hearts and minds of so many. My thoughts and prayers are with your loved ones and friends as another year passes. May they know that you will never be forgotten.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 76th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.

I can remember my late grandfather telling us (his grandkids) about his father, Fredrick C Porter. He was just a boy when his father was in the accident, but he could remember that day as though it was yesterday. He never told me the story with out showing emotion. It has been years since I came across my Great grandfather’s newspaper article. My grandfather was at the ceremony. If I would have been an adult then I would have been honored to be there with my grandfather to remember his father. It's very rare these days to find anyone who would help selflessly in any situation. We are very proud of what our great grandfather accomplished and the giving heart he must have had. Thank you.

No fellow Los Angeles County Area law enforcement personnel killed in the line-of-duty, should be forgotten.

Officer Porter, may Your Soul Rest-In-Peace.

This memorial is so nice to see. I obviously never got to meet my great grandfather, but it is heart-warming to see that his sacrifice is remembered and that he is honored for his call to duty.

My daughter, Brigid, found this site. She never knew of him until reading this. She says, "It is nice to know that people out there will know of the police officers who died during their duty. It is also nice to know that somebody will know of my great great grandfather."

For 17+ years I left briefing and walked past your plaque on the station wall. I had looked at it many times. I will not forget the ultimate sacrafice that you made.
