Sec. 991. Management of deployments of members

-STATUTE-

(a) General or Flag Officer Responsibilities. - (1) The

deployment (or potential deployment) of a member of the armed

forces shall be managed, during any period when the member is a

high-deployment days member, by the officer in the chain of command

of that member who is the lowest-ranking general or flag officer in

that chain of command. That officer shall ensure that the member

is not deployed, or continued in a deployment, on any day on which

the total number of days on which the member has been deployed out

of the preceding 365 days would exceed 220. However, the member may

be deployed, or continued in a deployment, without regard to the

preceding sentence if such deployment, or continued deployment, is

approved -

(A) in the case of a member who is assigned to a combatant

command in a position under the operational control of the

officer in that combatant command who is the service component

commander for the members of that member's armed force in that

combatant command, by that officer; and

(B) in the case of a member not assigned as described in

subparagraph (A), by the service chief of that member's armed

force (or, if so designated by that service chief, by an officer

of the same armed force on active duty who is in the grade of

general or admiral or who is the personnel chief for that armed

force).

(2) In this section, the term ''high-deployment days member''

means a member who has been deployed 182 days or more out of the

preceding 365 days.

(3) In paragraph (1)(B), the term ''service chief'' means the

Chief of Staff of the Army, the Chief of Naval Operations, the

Chief of Staff of the Air Force, or the Commandant of the Marine

Corps.

(b) Deployment Defined. - (1) For the purposes of this section, a

member of the armed forces shall be considered to be deployed or in

a deployment on any day on which, pursuant to orders, the member is

performing service in a training exercise or operation at a

location or under circumstances that make it impossible or

infeasible for the member to spend off-duty time in the housing in

which the member resides when on garrison duty at the member's

permanent duty station or homeport, as the case may be.

(2) In the case of a member of a reserve component who is

performing active service pursuant to orders that do not establish

a permanent change of station, the housing referred to in paragraph

(1) is any housing (which may include the member's residence) that

the member usually occupies for use during off-duty time when on

garrison duty at the member's permanent duty station or homeport,

as the case may be.

(3) For the purposes of this section, a member is not deployed or

in a deployment when the member is -

(A) performing service as a student or trainee at a school

(including any Government school);

(B) performing administrative, guard, or detail duties in

garrison at the member's permanent duty station; or

(C) unavailable solely because of -

(i) a hospitalization of the member at the member's permanent

duty station or homeport or in the immediate vicinity of the

member's permanent residence; or

(ii) a disciplinary action taken against the member.

(4) The Secretary of Defense may prescribe a definition of

deployment for the purposes of this section other than the

definition specified in paragraphs (1) and (2). Any such definition

may not take effect until 90 days after the date on which the

Secretary notifies the Committee on Armed Services of the Senate

and the Committee on Armed Services of the House of Representatives

of the revised standard definition of deployment.

(c) Recordkeeping. - The Secretary of each military department

shall establish a system for tracking and recording the number of

days that each member of the armed forces under the jurisdiction of

the Secretary is deployed.

(d) National Security Waiver Authority. - The Secretary of the

military department concerned may suspend the applicability of this

section to a member or any group of members under the Secretary's

jurisdiction when the Secretary determines that such a waiver is

necessary in the national security interests of the United States.

(e) Inapplicability to Coast Guard. - This section does not apply

to a member of the Coast Guard when the Coast Guard is not

operating as a service in the Navy.
