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.

I was with VR 24 from Sep 1972 to Feb 1974.  I would like to get in contact with anyone who might have been on det in late 1973 with two C2s in Souda Bay, Crete when one aircraft went down after land takeoff to deliver passengers to Independence and the back to home base Capo, Naples, Italy.  Its been a long time my friend AMS3 Murphy went down with that aircraft,  Willy the PC survived, and so did the pilots Lcdr and Ensign.  Would like to share information about it.  I was there also in Souda Bay.

Just wondering if there are any plans for a reunion in the Pensacola area in the near future.  Don't travel long distances anymore, but live 25 miles from NAS Pensacola. I can offer some limited assistance to any planned event.
