The photos on this page were contributed by Kent Wagoner who served with VR-24 in Port Lyautey as an Aviation Electronics Technician (AT) from 1961 to 1963 and moved with the squadron to Rota, Spain in 1963. In June 1961 Kent and Brenda Joyce Ashley were married in Port Lyautey and traveled together in Morocco, Italy and Spain.


Anyone who has photos, stories, and material they wish to share is encouraged to send them to Dick Prather, Webmaster/Editor of the VR-24 website.

The shaded courtyard between the barracks often became a place to relax or get a tan.

Though most days were spent in dungarees, some dressed for Sunday services, and for ventures into town. Here, Kent appears to be 'striking a pose' for the camera.

Shipmate, Bill Butterfield also poses for his photo somewhere on the base at Kenitra.
