VRC-50--Greenbush Airlines. did not go on the America. in the IO.

I was AMS2 aircrew VR24 det Naples from 1962-1967 COD. Then commissioned RH53D program as maintenance chief from 1977 to 1980. I have over 1100 hrs C1A flight time and many good times. VR24 was my best tour both of them. Only remember one name from the early days. Chuck Pierce from the C! days and from the RH53 era Merlin Morgan. Love this web site. Thanks for keeping it up.

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.
