Additional photos from Vern Christensen' collection. There were no quarters on base at Capodichinno when Vern Christensen and five other Air Controlmen (ACs) arrived in August 1952. Vern and three others rented an apartment in what had been part of a Marquis' mansion in downtown Naples. The photos show some of the furnishings that came with the apartment.

Anyone who has photos or information they wish to contribute to the VR-24 website is encouraged to send them to

Other recreation for those assigned to Naples included the NATO beach. It looks as if there was plenty of open space to enjoy the sun on the day this photo was taken.

What would a beach be without refreshments. The snack bar at the NATO beach provided a variety of food and drink.
