Served at Capo during 1973/74.  AMS3.  Was original maintenance crew for the T-39's; 361, 362, 363.  Arrived in Naples and was barely there a month and they sent me back to St. Louis for 2 weeks of T-39 training at Rockwell (at my request).  Wish I could do it again.  Great duty station with lots to do in Naples and surrounding area.  We were always fearful when we heard stories about moving to Sig.  Guess it finally happened a few years later! Two of the best years of my life.  Spent last year in VR-1 Norfolk. Thank you Uncle Sam for putting me through Engineering school in Youngstown Ohio.  In Louisville Ky for past 35+ years.  Will share some photos when I figure out how to do that.

Hello all, I’m currently an AWFCS at VR-59. Flown the C-9B and currently the C-40A. I’m a also a big history nerd so when I acquired a VR-24 plaque that belonged to AFCM Gerencser I wanted to learn more about the background of this squadron. My grandfather was in NATS (VR-3 was his last unit) so I have a family history in Naval Air Logistics. Thanks for all who have served before and please feel free to reach out of you know of any old plaques or items that would otherwise get lost as I’m always looking for them to add to my collection. Thanks!

Greetings to you shipmates.  Is anyone who served in Naples (VR-24 Det) from January 1956 to Alugust 1959 going to be at the reunion?

Liptak, I just saw your entry of today.  Even tho it has been 65 yrs. since I left VR-24, and Port Lyautey your name rings a memory bell.  If you retired in '70 you must have stayed for 20 yr.  I vaguely remember the golf on the London trip.  One of our ADs had a problem with his "back going out" and we had to straighten him out.   I can't remember if that was you or not.   You said you will be 87.   I'll hit 90 next January.  I won't make it to the reunion as there are some health issues that make travel difficult.
