UPDATE "...The VP-56 Reunion scheduled for June, 2001 was cancelled due to numerous reasons and we would like to make an attempt for next year. We found that it is almost impossible for 2 people (living outside of the Jacksonville area) and working full time to attempt to arrange a Reunion without having folks COMMIT in advance. Our sincere apologies to those who were inconvenienced by the cancellation. Please contact me if you'd like to assist with the re scheduled Reunion. Sincerely...Marianne Roe MROE287257@aol.com..."

ReunionsREUNIONs: "...Some time ago I put some comments looking for interest in a VP-56 Reunion. I have received so many responses that I decided that we should do it. I have planned for the last week in June 2001 in Jacksonville, FL. I am still working on many of the logistics and really could use some help. If anyone could provide assitance, please e-mail me. More info and how to book reservations to follow...Marianne Roe MROE287257@aol.com..." [03OCT2000]

ReunionsREUNIONs: "...I was in VP-56 from June 1985 - September 1989. I was an Aviation Storekeeper. I am presently stationed at Andrew's Air Force Base and have been considering making an attempt to have a VP-56 Reunion sometime in the Year 2000 or perhaps 2001 (ten years after decom). I'd like to see how many interested personnel there are and the demographics of those involved. Please e-mail me and let me know where you are and what you are doing and if you know anyone else who served in the squadron during those times. Look forward to hearing from you!..."
