Subsections (b) and (c) are worded to conform to the terminology

of the Career Compensation Act of 1949 (37 U.S.C. 231 et seq.).

The second and third provisos in 34 U.S.C. 410c(a), relating to the

computation of retired pay for officers whose pay on the active

list was not based on years of service, are omitted as obsolete,

since under the Career Compensation Act of 1949, the active-duty

pay of all officers is based on years of service.

In subsection (d) the words ''A retired member who is advanced *

* * from the grade of warrant officer, W-1, or from an enlisted

grade'' are substituted for the words ''Enlisted men and warrant

officers * * * advanced'' and the words ''as a warrant officer,

W-1, or an enlisted member'' are substituted for the words ''to be

enlisted or warrant officer personnel'' because the Warrant Officer

Act of 1954 established the grade of warrant officer, W-1, in lieu

of the old warrant officer (as distinguished from commissioned

warrant officer) grades. The words ''rank or'' are omitted as

unnecessary. The words ''within three months of the date of the

approval of this Act'' and ''whichever is the later'' are omitted

as executed.

for ''sections 688''.

1986 - Subsec. (b). Pub. L. 99-348 amended subsec. (b) generally,

1980, be at a rate of 2 1/2 percent of the monthly retired pay base

computed under section 1407(d), which rates were to be multiplied

such retired pay was not to be more than 75 percent of the basic

pay or monthly retired pay base upon which the computation of

grade to which advanced, determined by the same period of service

used to determine the basic pay of the grade upon which his

retainer pay was based, multiplied by the number of years of

creditable service for his retainer pay at the time of retirement,

but such retired pay was not to be more than 75 percent of the

basic pay upon the computation of retired pay was based, or in the

case of a former member who first became a member of a uniformed

service, as defined in section 1407(a)(2), on or after Sept. 8,

1980, that retired pay be at a rate of 2 1/2 percent of the monthly

percent of the monthly retired pay base upon which the computation

Pub. L. 96-342 amended subsec. (b) generally, designating

existing provisions as pars. (1) and (2) and, as so amended, in

par. (1) designated existing provisions as subpar. (A), as so

designated, inserted provision limiting applicability to members

who became members of the uniformed services before the date of the

enactment of the Department of Defense Authorization Act, 1981, and

added subpar. (B).

Subsec. (c). Pub. L. 96-513, Sec. 513(17), substituted

''September 8, 1980'' for ''the date of the enactment of the

Department of Defense Authorization Act, 1981'' wherever appearing.

(a) Every disabled person who has served in the Navy or Marine
