History 

Am 25. Mai 1960 wurde die VS-24 auf der Marinestation Norfolk in Virgina wieder aufgestellt. Als Teil der CVSG-56 führte die VS-24 wie ihre Schwesterstaffel den Leitwerkscode AU. Die Staffel wurde mit der S2F-1 ausgerüstet und 1962 auf die S2F-1F umgeschult. Entgegen den anderen CVSG’s hatte die CVSG-56 keinen festen Träger zugeteilt. So machte die VS-24 Einsatzfahrten auf der CVS-45 USS Valley Forge, CVS-9 USS Essex, CVS-11 USS Intrepid, CVS-15 USS Randolph und CVS-10 USS Yorktown. 1964 erfolgte die Umschulung auf das E Modell der Grumman Tracker. Ab 1970 flog die Staffel einen Mix aus S-2E und der S-2G. 1974 wurde die Staffel der Trägergruppe CVW-3 auf dem Superträger CV-60 USS Saratoga für eine Einsatzfahrt ins Mittelmeer zugeteilt. 1975 erfolgte dann die Umschulung auf die Lockheed S-3A Viking.
