Your memories of VAH11 and Det 8 are accurate!  I had a good shipmate from the Det; AK2 Jim Pihlgard (since passed)   As  I recall from talking with him, the Det had an extended cruise I n "62 or "63.  Result?  a divorce rate near 60%, him included!

My name is Rod Chapman, also an AK from VAH-7 and NAS Supply!
