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.

Hello to shipmates living in or somewhere near Pensacola, Florida.  Would anyone be interested in an informal "get-together" at the Naval Aviation Museum?  Its located at NAS Pensacola, and they have food available in the museum ready-room.  Get in touch with me, and i'll try to coordinate the get-together

Served in VR-24 (Fleet Tactical Support Squadron) from 1972-1975.
Retired AD-1 (NAC).  
Retired again from Anniston Army Depot (WG-11) Mechanic.
Was in Dammam, Saudi Arabia preparing the M1 Abrams tanks
for battle during Desert Shield (16hrs. a day / 7 days a week).
Have met only three of my VR-24 squadron mates, two live in Pensacola area, one came down from Philly and flew a C-1A that was once in this area. Big treat for him!
Never been to a reunion.
Would welcome contact from former squadron mates.
