For many years, I have searched for a former shipmate named Kevin D. Porter. He was originally from Gary, Indiana. Kevin was stationed aboard the USS Vancouver (LPD-2) since before my arrival in 1979. If I correctly recall, Kevin reenlisted in 1983 and was granted shore duty in SIMA San Diego, California.

In the process of searching for Kevin, I found 2 other shipmates whom - as luck would have it - have also unsuccessfully looked for Kevin over the years.

Any advise or direction in this quest will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you kindly

It appears that he has passed away as of Sep of 1996 at the age of 38.

For anyone who has access to ancestry.com, can you locate an obituary for him?

Thank you again. His Shipmates have some reckoning to do.
