Piggy Back Fraternity

Ground Crew and other base personnel who were lucky enough to receive a ride in one of the 9th PRS's F-4's or F-5's would become "Short Porker Members of the Piggy Back Fraternity" and would receive a certificate stating where they received their ride and signed by the pilot.
