RVAHNAVY Association Mission Statement
The RVAHNAVY Association exists to serve the men and women who were associated with the United States Navy RVAH and VAH communities. Our mission is to honor those who served by providing resources, information, sponsoring reunions and remembering our Shipmates.
If you signed up for membership here please note that in addition to the automated confirmation email you'll receive after filling out the signup form you should also expect to receive a followup email from Management (email addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org and/or email@example.com). Please respond to that email so we can complete the membership process.
Your membership is tied to the email address you used to "reenlist" in Reccenet. If you did away with that address and got a new one then you need to update your profile (see instructions in the pdf attached to this post : A Reminder From Management ). If you forget your password and no longer have access to the email address we have on file you'll no longer be able to access your account (and we can't fix it because the Ning website software doesn't allow us to access your password or change your email address).
Hi everyone. I know many of you know about our two sites, www.rvahnavy.com and rvahnavy.ning.com (RecceNet). I originally developed the RVAHNAVY site (Joe Phillips redesigned the current version) and set up RVAHNAVY's Reccenet which is now maintained by Steven Ewing. I decided to go up to rvahnavy.com and take out some outdated links and data referring to the gear locker, reunions and other things that are very confusing. I will continue to fix up the site and eventually all pertanent links will point to RecceNet. (Ning site).
The site has been up for 15 years and its been 10 years since Joe Phillips did his great redesign so it needs some TLC. Hopefully all the bad links will point to good and current data and the site will be better for all of us.
Thanks to Robert Wagner, Rue (Jr) West, Steve Ewing, Phil Tucker, Mads Bangsø, Alvis Didway and our Current Newsletter Author Touche for all you do! Thanks to all of you who contributed and still send money to keep it all alive. The RVAH community will live on until we are all gone.

1/30/2018 ATTENTION ALL HANDS!! If you find a website claiming to be the RVAH Navy Gear Locker or Ship's Store it is not an Association authorized Store or it is a remnant leftover on the internet that is not connected to anything anymore.
We are currently evaluating our Gear Locker situation and will be making an announcement soon. All outstanding orders will be fulfilled if we have the inventory and if not, you will be refunded.
We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.
With regards to the possibility of a reunion cruise, that is suspended for now. Working two full time jobs doesn't give me the time or opportunity to put this together. I am very sorry as I was hoping it would happen.
