It's been awhile since I've visited this site, read a few of the comments on the guest book, I remember a few names that was at Naples at the same time I was there. The last time I attended a reunion was the last one Pete Owens put on. I spent several years looking for a couple of buddies, Gene Garcia and Jim Camp from air cargo and found that both passed. Gene in 2005 an Camp some time in the passed couple years. I don't know if any out there remembers these two shipmate, But I thought I would pass this info on as they were a part of a good crew. I was stationed with VR-24 Det. From early 1956 to Late 1957. Anyway the holiday season is upon us already, hope all have a wonderful Christmas.

Thanks to this website, a shipmate of mine who I haven't seen or heard from in 57 years emailed me.  What a great surprise.  I hope he attends the VR-24 reunion next year.

I found your website while seaching for the Rota Wranglers Rodeo Assn in Rota. Rota Spain Boys Scouts -1970's Facebook page has a lot of pictures of the Rodeo Assn. I was Stationed at Rota, worked in base Aviation Supply. 1961-1964. I was a member of the Rodeo Assn. I rode the bulls. We got metal landing from Moroco for our fence. Also a lot of new members. Can't remember names though. Only faces.

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen of VR-24,

I am an aviation historian and writer with 34 years experience as an Air Loadmaster in the Royal Air Force. I now write historical articles for UK aviation magazines and I want to write about the C-2A Greyhound, its history and operational record now that it is in its 50th year since the first flight. All I hope to get from members of VR-24 are recollections of flying in the Greyhound; what was it like to fly? Recollections of missions flown, near misses, close shaves etc. If members feel that I am treading on toes by being here then let me know and I will leave you in peace.

Yours sincerely

Tom Docherty
