After Sept. 11, U.S. Navy Rear Adm. Richard Porterfield pledged to stand with the grieving families of Naperville native Cmdr. Dan Shanower and seven other Naval intelligence personnel under him who were killed in the Pentagon. He will be the keynote speaker in Naperville's Sept. 11 memorial service. "We are coming to Naperville ... to ensure the citizens of Naperville never forget that one of their own sons was such a remarkable young man who died in the line of duty, and died much too young," Porterfield said.
