Porter, from Sacramento, Calif., and Harry Quinton, from Williamsburg, Va., share a laugh as they look through a commemorative journal of Tuskegee Airman history, on the first day of the 40th Annual Tuskegee Airmen National Convention, at the Gaylord Hotel and Convention Center, in National Harbor, Md., Wednesday, Aug. 3, 2011. Both Porter and Quinton served as mechanics and flight engineers in the Tuskegee Airmen. "It's wonderful to come back and see everyone," said Porter. "We didn't even realize we were stationed at the same base together until we met here." The two were both stationed at Godman Field near Fort Knox in Louisville, Ky.
