The photos on this page were contributed by Bruce Thompson who serve two tours in VR-24 as an Aviation Metalsmith. He performed ground maintenance, was a Quality Assurance (QA) Representative, and flew as an aircrewman on the C2A and T39 aircraft. These photos depict Bruce Thompson and other members of the squadron as they carry out the squadron's missions, and enjoy the fringe benifits and opportunities to travel offered by their aircrew duties.
