Aviation Safety

VR-24 was recognized by CNO and CINCLANTFLT for flight safety on at least three occasions. The CNO Safety patches and article below document that recognition.

The CNO Safety Award patch was worn by squadron members on their flight jackets. This photo of the Award patch was contributed by Mike Hatfield, son of LT "Porky" Hatfield, a former squadron R5D Plane Commander.


This CNO Safety patch authenicates the squadron' award for accident free operation during the year 1962. This patch is from the collection of Ernie Gasaway, who served with VR-24 from 1963-65.


This copy of the CINCLANTFLT citation presented to VR-24 was contributed by former squadron member, Sandy Silarski.
