All i know is that my fathers initial enlistment,according to army records,was classified as D.E.M.L.It may be something similar to the national guard or reserves.The reason i say this is because he personaly mentioned to me thathe enlisted in the national guard.It may also have something to do with some type of homeland security since his duties had to do with "coast watching".This meant they kept watch of the coast of the Americas for submarines,ships,planes,etc..

Answer"Detached" personnel would refer to people who are members of one command but assigned duties with another unit.
