I was in VA-12 from 1981-84 and was part of the sigonella Detachment from the USS Eisenhower during the 1983 Med Cruise. Had a lot of fun memories that summer with guys from your squadron.
The most memorable event was at the e-club when members from vp-45 got a hold of the Marines dog and shaved VP-8 with hair clippers on both sides of its body and then turned it loose just before they jumped on the last plane heading home... needless to say there was a lot of tension in the E club that night LMAO!

Hello

Was in VR-24 Det Naples as an AE and Aircrewman on the C-1A when the C-2's moved there from Rota.  I still enjoy linking up with some of the folks who were there with me so many years ago.  Was in Naples 71-73 and then VR-24 Det Rota 76-79 and returned again to Rota 86-90 after the squadron became VR-22.  Retired from the USN in 1994.

I retired-retired in July 2017 and live in Crane Hill, AL.  Would like to hear from other VR-24 folks from those years/locations where we may have served together. 

Be and stay well.

I was stationed in Rota Spain with Vr-24 det. out Napels Italy between 1966-1968. I made AD3 there. We were flying C-130s, C118s and we received C-2s just before I left. I worked as a mech on all three, then worked in the maint. control, I also worked on the line, and after I made third class supervised the aircraft washing crew. After that I flew air crew on the 118s, and C-130s. I got out of the Navy and went in the Naval reserves, stationed in Memphis Tenn. with VP-67 flying SP2H Neptunes,aircrew after P2 Fam. school in North Island. I retired with 20 years as a Cm1 in the CBs.
