I was a Navy dependent while my father was stationed at Naval Base Rota. My parents best friends flew with VR-24 between 1978-1981. I just wanted to say thanks for the photos of some of the places I visited during my time there.

I just realized that Yom Kippur is coming up, and remember the Unit Commendation Medal? that we (VR-24 Det Rota) earned during the Yom Kippur War in 1973.
I was stationed at VR-24 Det Rota from April 1972 until August 1975, arriving as an E-2 fresh out of AK school in Millington TN, and left as an AK-2 after three years, nine months, and 15 days in Rota. Some of the best years and memories I have.
At the height of the Vietnam War, I was drafted out of High School in Feb 1971, drawing a low number in the first ever national lottery. Joined the Navy, and spent my Vietnam Era service in Rota. Maybe I did win the lottery!

Just wanted to thank Susan and Mary Jo for the great job they did in getting the Branson re-union together. i know that it was a monumental task for them traveling all the way from California. Also want to give Virgil and Bob credit for their contribution. It went off without a hitch and was very organized and enjoyable. If you missed it there is always next year. l would like to hook up with some of the folks stationed in Naples from 1969-1973.

Stationed in VR-24 at Sigonella from mid 1977 to 1979. Got there as a freshly minted AT-3 before the first RH-53D showed up. Lots of trips in those old helos as they took the ground support crew everywhere to keep them flying.

I was assigned to VR-24 from Oct 82 as a new CWO 2 until Oct 84. I served with VP 24 at NAS JAX for 4 years and was promoted to CWO 3and 4. I then was assigned as OIC NAESU Det JAX 2 years. I was sent to the USS Midway in YKO Japan as the AIMD Div Officer. Went through Desert Storm and decommissioned her in San Diego, where she is now a floating Museum. My last duty station before I retired was Logistic/Maintenance Officer for Commander Patrol Wing 11 at NAS JAX. I retired on 1 Dec 1994 with over 30 years active duty. I now live in the mountains of Western NC with my wife of 22 years Sarah.
