(a) Rule for Retirement in Highest Grade Held Satisfactorily. -

(1) Unless entitled to a higher retired grade under some other

provision of law, a commissioned officer (other than a commissioned

warrant officer) of the Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine Corps who

retires under any provision of law other than chapter 61 or chapter

1223 of this title shall, except as provided in paragraph (2), be

retired in the highest grade in which he served on active duty

satisfactorily, as determined by the Secretary of the military

department concerned, for not less than six months.

(2)(A) In order to be eligible for voluntary retirement under any

provision of this title in a grade above major or lieutenant

commander, a commissioned officer of the Army, Navy, Air Force, or

Marine Corps must have served on active duty in that grade for not

less than three years, except that the Secretary of Defense may

authorize the Secretary of a military department to reduce such

period to a period not less than two years in the case of

retirements effective during the period beginning on October 1,

2002, and ending on December 31, 2003.

(B) In the case of an officer to be retired in a general or flag

officer grade, authority provided by the Secretary of Defense to

the Secretary of a military department under subparagraph (A) may

be exercised with respect to that officer only if approved by the

Secretary of Defense or another civilian official in the Office of

the Secretary of Defense appointed by the President, by and with

the advice and consent of the Senate.

(C) Authority provided by the Secretary of Defense to the

involving extreme hardship or exceptional or unusual

circumstances. The authority of the President under the preceding

sentence may not be delegated.

(E) In the case of a grade below the grade of lieutenant general

or vice admiral, the number of members of one of the armed forces

in the period of service-in-grade otherwise required under this

paragraph may not exceed the number equal to two percent of the

(3) A reserve or temporary officer who is notified that he will

be released from active duty without his consent and thereafter

requests retirement under section 3911, 6323, or 8911 of this title

and is retired pursuant to that request is considered for purposes

of this section, to have been retired involuntarily. An officer

(b) Retirement in Next Lower Grade. - An officer whose length of

service in the highest grade he held while on active duty does not

military department concerned, for not less than six months.

(c) Officers in O-9 and O-10 Grades. - (1) An officer who is

serving in or has served in the grade of general or admiral or

three-year service-in-grade requirement in paragraph (2)(A) of

misconduct; or

personnel action against the officer for alleged misconduct.

certification with respect to an officer under paragraph (1) only

to the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness or

the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness.

(B) If authority is delegated under subparagraph (A) and, in the

course of consideration of an officer for a certification under

paragraph (1), the Under Secretary or (if such authority is

delegated to both the Under and Deputy Under Secretary) the Deputy

Under Secretary makes a determination described in subparagraph (C)

with respect to that officer, the Under Secretary or Deputy Under

Secretary, as the case may be, may not exercise the delegated

authority in that case, but shall refer the matter to the Secretary

of Defense, who shall personally determine whether to issue a

certification under paragraph (1) with respect to that officer.

(C) A determination referred to in subparagraph (B) is a

determination that there is potentially adverse information

the Secretary of the military department concerned) as a reserve

commissioned officer in an active status, or in a retired status on

active duty, for not less than six months.

(3)(A) In order to be credited with satisfactory service in an

officer grade above major or lieutenant commander, a person covered

by paragraph (1) must have served satisfactorily in that grade (as

determined by the Secretary of the military department concerned)

as a reserve commissioned officer in an active status, or in a

retired status on active duty, for not less than three years.

(B) A person covered by subparagraph (A) who has completed at

least six months of satisfactory service in grade may be credited

provision of law requiring that transfer or discharge due to the

person's age or years of service; or

membership in the Ready Reserve solely because of a physical

disability, as determined, at a minimum, by a medical evaluation

board and at the time of such transfer or discharge such person

(pursuant to section 12731b of this title or otherwise) meets the

position of adjutant general, and the person has failed to complete

three years of service in that grade solely because the person's

appointment to such position has been terminated or vacated as

described in section 324(b) of such title, then such person may be

credited with satisfactory service in that grade, notwithstanding

the failure to complete three years of service in that grade.

(D) To the extent authorized by the Secretary of the military

department concerned, a person who, after having been recommended

for promotion in a report of a promotion board but before being

promoted to the recommended grade, served in a position for which

that grade is the minimum authorized grade may be credited for

purposes of subparagraph (A) as having served in that grade for the

period for which the person served in that position while in the

next lower grade. The period credited may not include any period

before the date on which the Senate provides advice and consent for

the appointment of that person in the recommended grade.

(E) To the extent authorized by the Secretary of the military

department concerned, a person who, after having been found

qualified for Federal recognition in a higher grade by a board

under section 307 of title 32, serves in a position for which that

grade is the minimum authorized grade and is appointed as a reserve

officer in that grade may be credited for the purposes of

subparagraph (A) as having served in that grade. The period of the

service for which credit is afforded under the preceding sentence

may only be the period for which the person served in the position

after the Senate provides advice and consent for the appointment.

(F) A person covered by subparagraph (A) who has completed at

least six months of satisfactory service in a grade above colonel

or (in the case of the Navy) captain and, while serving in an

active status in such grade, is involuntarily transferred (other

Reserve or discharge, is to be credited with satisfactory service

in a general or flag officer grade under paragraph (1), authority

provided by the Secretary of Defense to the Secretary of a military

department under subparagraph (A) may be exercised with respect to

that person only if approved by the Secretary of Defense or another

civilian official in the Office of the Secretary of Defense

appointed by the President, by and with the advice and consent of

the Senate.

(C) Authority provided by the Secretary of Defense to the

Secretary of a military department under subparagraph (A) may be
