VP-24 Alumni Association |
(VB-104, VPB-104, VP-104, VP-HL-4, VA(HM)-13)
The 2003 Reunion is being planned for Jacksonville, FL. It will be hosted by Don & Chris Hall (firstname.lastname@example.org 850-650-3048). We expect it to coincide with the Blue Angel Show in the October timeframe (October 24th - 26th). A great spouse's program is being planned as well. We hope to obtain NAVY help - maybe a base tour and a visit to one of the active patrol squadrons at NAS Jacksonville, Florida. Don & Chris can use all the help we can give them! Can you volunteer to help?
Lastly, The History of VP-24 (1943 - 1995) is available in hardcopy (165+ pgs.) or CD-ROM, contact Andy Massa for copies.
