VRC-50 will be having its next reunion in Las Vegas, Nevada in September of 2016. We are
coordially inviting former members of VR-21, VR-22(the first one), VR-23,VR-24, VRC-30, VRC-40
and CV C-1A COD Crews to join with us. We are working on the location and activities, and will
provide details when they become available. The reason for this notice is to provide ample time
to plan time off if you are still in the work force and save up for this event.
The common theme in inviting all of you is the COD ( Carrier Onboard Delivery) mission we all
privided to the Fleet(S). Both WestPac and Med...
And to the many of you who served in more than one of these squadrons. We hope you will be able
to make it....
Thanks and I will be in touch as more details emerge....

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.

My father, AEC Louis Komuves, was in VR-24 in the late 50s/early 60s and again in Naples and Sigonella from 1975-78. We lived off base and I went to what was then Stephen Decatur Elem. School. My dad passed away 3 NOV 2013, but I have recently been going through a treasure trove of his pictures and slides. I hope to post links to them in the weeks and months to come.
