Hey all you VR-24 (Sig) Shipmates!  Been a while since I checked-in.  Gaby (AN Steinau, 86-88) and I (80-81 & 85-88) just celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary!  Seems like yesterday we met in the VR hangar the same day she arrived off the Cat B!

We also just relocated to the Yuma, AZ area.  We are done moving, planning to retire here!  After all these years of moving around, first for the Navy and then for her Gov job, we are done.

If you are ever out this way, drop us an email and we'll share some sea-stories and a few cold ones.

Wow, didn't realize there was an association for VR24. I was stationed with VR24 DET Rota, late 78 to late 81. I see there is a reunion planned for Nov, hope I can make it, would be nice to renew old friendships.
How do I go about joining the association?

Was privileged to fly aboard the "World's Biggest Little Airline" several times in 1973-1975 while stationed at NSGD, Naples.  One memorable approach flying into Capo in a thunderstorm - BIG thunderstorm:  our CT-39G was hit twice by lightning, lost engine power and electrics both times.  Two good restarts, and a safe landing in Naples.  I love Navy pilots!  Some shaky knees after that one, though.

Hello, Former VR-24 Shipmates and Friends,

Susan and retired ADRC Virgil Woods have announced plans for another VR-24 Reunion in 2017!  This year's reunion will be held 2 to 5 November  in Norfolk, Virginia at the Quality Suites & Sleep Inn, Lake Wright - Norfolk Airport,6280 Northampton Blvd.,Norfolk, VA 23502.

From all reports attendees at the 2016 reunion in Branson, MO really enjoyed themselves. There are many reasons to visit Norfolk. Meeting with old shipmates ranks at the top of the list. So mark your calendars  and plan to join former shipmates and renew friendships in Norfolk this November!

More information will be sent out as details become available.

WITH FOND PAST MEMORIES OF HIM, I FOUND THAT AN OLD SHIPMATE I SERVED WITH IN THE UK PASSED AWAY IN JANUARY 2015 IN EXETER N.H.  ROBERT (BOB) BROADBENT SERVED IN VR-24 FROM 1961-1964.  HE WAS AN AVIATION STOREKEEPER, AND RETIRED AS AN AKCM.

I was a Navy dependent while my father was stationed at Naval Base Rota.  My parents best friends flew with VR-24 between 1978-1981.  I just wanted to say thanks for the photos of some of the places I visited during my time there.
