Kent Wagoner proved to be a more serious-minded young man than most of his shipmates when on 24 June 1962 he and his sweetheart, Brenda Joyce Athey, were married in the NAS Port Lyautey base chapel. The photos below from Kent's collection depict scenes from that momentous occasion.


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.
