Was with VR-24 from 1963-1965. Both Morocco and Spain. We had to move out of Morocco, (their gov. made us), to Spain. Had great times with VR-24.  That was a very long time ago. Still remember some of it. Have a few pictures around here some place will have to look for them.

Was attached to VR-24 in Naples Italy and part of flight crew during late 1973 to early 1975. Was a wide-eyed naïve 18yoa in a field that had just opened up to women. Being among the first wasn't easy but it makes it a little smoother for those that follow. A lot of great memories and how I loved flying!

I was in VR-24 Det in Naples from May of 70 to Jan. 73.  The last reunion I attended was in Cherry Hill, Maryland.  I would like to see some of the guys from that period in Pensacola.  If anyone knows of Lynn Hyatt, Pat Davis, Punchie Destifano, Chief Dan Dompe, Freddie Frederichs, Dan Hatcher and Smokie Stover, I would like to contact them again.

Looking forward to the 2014 reunion.  Have attended several in the past.  I served in VR-24 Det, Naples from Jan 55 to Aug 59 and enjoyed my tour.  Was an AE striker but ended up an YN2 and flew as a loadmaster on the R5D's and TBM's (WWII Torpedo Plane converted to carry cargo).  We used to jump on the wings after they were extended to make sure that they were locked in place.
