Hello, VR-24 Shipmates!
Susan Woods has finalized plans for the 2017 VR-24 Reunion in Norfolk, VA from 2-5 November.  From this web site's home page, go to the Reunion Information Page to read Susan's letter with details of this year's reunion. You can also download/copy the Registration Form with which to sign up for the reunion. You will need to make separate reservations for your hotel rooms. So, sign up, make your reservations and plan to join shipmates and friends in making this another great VR-24 reunion.

Hello shipmate from the VR-24, I do right now a study of the C-2A Grumman Greyhound with all their NAVY squadrons. Also the VR-24 will get a chapter. But I will mention also the other equipment that went with the VR-24 like the C-2A Trader as well as the CT-39 Sabreliner. See images below. But more the C-2A.
If you have stories of material to share, please contact me. Email address at my web page or here on the contact link.

Hey all you VR-24 (Sig) Shipmates!  Been a while since I checked-in.  Gaby (AN Steinau, 86-88) and I (80-81 & 85-88) just celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary!  Seems like yesterday we met in the VR hangar the same day she arrived off the Cat B!

We also just relocated to the Yuma, AZ area.  We are done moving, planning to retire here!  After all these years of moving around, first for the Navy and then for her Gov job, we are done.

If you are ever out this way, drop us an email and we'll share some sea-stories and a few cold ones.

Wow, didn't realize there was an association for VR24. I was stationed with VR24 DET Rota, late 78 to late 81. I see there is a reunion planned for Nov, hope I can make it, would be nice to renew old friendships.
How do I go about joining the association?

Was privileged to fly aboard the "World's Biggest Little Airline" several times in 1973-1975 while stationed at NSGD, Naples.  One memorable approach flying into Capo in a thunderstorm - BIG thunderstorm:  our CT-39G was hit twice by lightning, lost engine power and electrics both times.  Two good restarts, and a safe landing in Naples.  I love Navy pilots!  Some shaky knees after that one, though.
