T.C. Stevens and Dave Alderton relax at the downtown EM Club.

Some went for what would later be popularized by President Eisenhower as his "people-to- people" program. VR-24 members L-R Davis, Enders, Laveck, Dawe, and Joe Babis pose with sheepherders while on a jeep trip into the "hinterlands". The shepards bargained for cigarettes in trade for being photographed.

JL Lynch and a young local named Abdula, known for his constant good humor and ability to find almost anything his American friends desired.

Ben Vanadore befriends a couple of allies, in this case members of the local French Navy contingent.

Honneycut and Joe Babis hang out in Port Lyautey.
