GAINESVILLE, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, June 29, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — The TODAY Show on NBC, one of the most recognizable morning shows on television, aired a news segment in honor of Memorial Day dedicated to former U.S. Army Sergeant Alfonso Porter.

Throughout his military career, he was also awarded the Combat Action Badge, Army Commendation with Silver Oak Leaf, Army Achievement Medal with 4 Oak Leaf Custers, Afghanistan Campaign Medal with 2 Campaign Stars and more.
Alfonso received the surprise of a lifetime when Military Warriors Support Foundation Founder and CEO, Lt. Gen. Leroy Sisco, presented him the key to his brand-n new home, donated by Wells Fargo and Military Warriors Support Foundation.
“I hope to have a good meeting place for our family,” stated Porter. He continued, “I’d love for people to say, ‘Hey, let’s go down to Texas because that’s where family is.’ That’s home base.” Now Porter and his family have that home base. They have a place to call home.
