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.

Steve Simmons, I do believe that we were in Naples at this same time.  Between 1966-1968, I was also a ADR3. Flying C-130' and C-118's.  I was a mechanic and C1A plane captain.  Do you recall where you flew to.  I know that we where support group for VR21 Air Tactical.  Do you recall any trips into Nam?
Please advise.
