HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

This section is included in this chapter without specific

reference to statutory source to resolve the ambiguities and

conflicts existing in the statutes relating to the appointment of

midshipmen at the Naval Academy. The word ''appoint'' has been used

in various statutes when the intent of Congress was to provide

authority in the persons named to ''choose,'' ''select,'' or

''nominate'' for the office of midshipman. These statutes have

been collected and codified in Sec. 6954 of this title, which

reflects the various sources of nominees for ''appointment'' as

midshipmen and the persons who may so ''nominate'' them. The

actual appointing power resides in the President and this implied

authority is herein expressed for clarity and for the purpose of

uniformity of expression.

AMENDMENTS

1981 - Pub. L. 97-60 inserted provision that an appointment is

conditional until the midshipman is admitted.

EFFECTIVE DATE OF 1981 AMENDMENT

Amendment by Pub. L. 97-60 effective with respect to nominations

for appointment to the first class admitted to each Academy after

Oct. 14, 1981, see section 203(d) of Pub. L. 97-60, set out as an

Effective Date note under section 4341a of this title.

-HEAD-

Sec. 6954. Midshipmen: number

-STATUTE-

(a) The authorized strength of the Brigade of Midshipmen

(determined for any year as of the day before the last day of the

by the Secretary of the Navy under subsection (h). Subject to that

limitation, midshipmen are selected as follows:

(1) 65 selected in order of merit as established by competitive

examination from the children of members of the armed forces who

disability at not less than 100 per centum resulting from, wounds

or injuries received or diseases contracted in, or preexisting

injury or disease aggravated by, active service, children of

members who are in a ''missing status'' as defined in section

551(2) of title 37, and children of civilian employees who are in

''missing status'' as defined in section 5561(5) of title 5. The

determination of the Department of Veterans Affairs as to service

connection of the cause of death or disability is rated, is

binding upon the Secretary of the Navy.

is no Vice President, by the President pro tempore of the Senate.

(3) Ten from each State, five of whom are nominated by each

Senator from that State.

Congress from American Samoa.

(10) One from the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands,

nominated by the resident representative from the commonwealth.

Each Senator, Representative, and Delegate in Congress, including

the Resident Commissioner from Puerto Rico, is entitled to nominate

10 persons for each vacancy that is available under this section.

Nominees may be submitted without ranking or with a principal

candidate and 9 ranked or unranked alternates. Qualified nominees

not selected for appointment under this subsection shall be

considered qualified alternates for the purposes of selection under

other provisions of this chapter.

(b) In addition there may be appointed each year at the Academy

midshipmen as follows:

(1) one hundred selected by the President from the children of

members of an armed force who -

(A) are on active duty (other than for training) and who have

served continuously on active duty for at least eight years;

(B) are, or who died while they were, retired with pay or

granted retired or retainer pay;

(C) are serving as members of reserve components and are

credited with at least eight years of service computed under

section 12733 of this title; or

(D) would be, or who died while they would have been,

entitled to retired pay under chapter 1223 of this title except

members of the Regular Navy and the Regular Marine Corps.

(3) 85 nominated by the Secretary of the Navy from enlisted

members of the Naval Reserve and the Marine Corps Reserve.

(4) 20 nominated by the Secretary of the Navy, under

regulations prescribed by him, from the honor graduates of

schools designated as honor schools by the Department of the

Army, the Department of the Navy, or the Department of the Air

Force, and from members of the Naval Reserve Officer's Training

corps.

(5) 150 selected by the Secretary of the Navy in order of merit

(prescribed pursuant to section 6956 of this title) from

qualified alternates nominated by persons named in clauses (3)

and (4) of subsection (a).

(c) The President may also appoint as midshipmen at the Academy

children of persons who have been awarded the medal of honor for

acts performed while in the armed forces.

(d) The Superintendent of the Naval Academy may nominate for

appointment each year 50 persons from the country at large.

Persons nominated under this paragraph may not displace any

appointment authorized under clauses (2) through (9) of subsection

(a) and may not cause the total strength of midshipmen at the Naval

Academy to exceed the authorized number.

(e) The Secretary of the Navy may limit the number of midshipmen

appointed under subsection (b)(5). When he does so, if the total

number of midshipmen, upon admission of a new class at the Academy,

will be more than 3,737, no appointments may be made under

subsection (b)(2) or (3) of this section or section 6956 of this

title.

(f) The Secretary of the Navy shall furnish to any Member of

Congress, upon the written request of such Member, the name of the

Congressman or other nominating authority responsible for the

nomination of any named or identified person for appointment to the

Academy.

(g) For purposes of the limitation in subsection (a) establishing

the aggregate authorized strength of the Brigade of Midshipmen, the

Secretary of the Navy may for any year permit a variance in that

limitation by not more than one percent. In applying that

limitation, and any such variance, the last day of an academic year

shall be considered to be graduation day.

(h)(1) Beginning with the 2003-2004 academic year, the Secretary

of the Navy may prescribe annual increases in the midshipmen

strength limit in effect under subsection (a). For any academic

year, any such increase shall be by no more than 100 midshipmen or

such lesser number as applies under paragraph (3) for that year.

Such annual increases may be prescribed until the midshipmen

strength limit is 4,400. However, no increase may be prescribed for

any academic year after the 2007-2008 academic year.

(2) Any increase in the midshipmen strength limit under paragraph

(1) with respect to an academic year shall be prescribed not later

than the date on which the budget of the President is submitted to

Congress under section 1105 of title 31 for the fiscal year

beginning in the same year as the year in which that academic year

begins. Whenever the Secretary prescribes such an increase, the

Secretary shall submit to Congress a notice in writing of the

increase. The notice shall state the amount of the increase in the

midshipmen strength limit and the new midshipmen strength limit, as

so increased, and the amount of the increase in Senior Navy Reserve

Officers' Training Corps enrollment under each of sections 2104 and

2107 of this title.

(3) The amount of an increase under paragraph (1) in the

midshipmen strength limit for an academic year may not exceed the

increase (if any) for the preceding academic year in the total

number of midshipmen enrolled in the Navy Senior Reserve Officers'

Training Corps program under chapter 103 of this title who have

entered into an agreement under section 2104 or 2107 of this title.

means the authorized maximum strength of the Brigade of Midshipmen.

All provisions of law authorizing appointments to the Naval

Academy from various sources are collected in this section. The

language is extensively changed to meet the needs of this

organization of the source material. In those provisions that now

authorize ''appointments'' by other than the President, the

language is changed to indicate that the process is one of

selection where the law requires selection by competitive

examination, and to show that other candidates are nominated. The

manner of appointing the selectees and nominees, in all cases, is

covered in Sec. 6953 of this title. In the case of nominees from

States, the District of Columbia, Territories, and from Puerto

Rico, the qualification that the nominees must be from the

political subdivisions from which nominated is indicated. The

requirement that the nominees be actual residents of the political

subdivisions is contained in Sec. 6958(b) of this title.

In subsection (a)(1) the words ''armed forces'' are substituted

for the description of the land and naval forces. The words

''including male and female members of'' and ''of all components

-------------------------------

The section is worded to indicate that all appointments are made

by the President, and that, before appointment, prospective

midshipmen are ''nominees'' or ''candidates'', as appropriate.

In subsection (b) the provision authorizing the Secretary of the

Navy to nominate candidates in the event nominations to fill

vacancies under subsection (a) are not made by March fourth is

omitted as covered by subsection (e), the purpose of which was to

assure the entrance of a full class each year.

Reference in subsection (e) to the strength of the ''brigade of

midshipmen'' is dropped, since there is no statutory requirement

that the midshipmen at the Academy be so organized, and the term is

a recognition of current organization only. The language

authorizing the Secretary, in his discretion, to nominate

additional midshipmen to meet the needs of the armed services but

not to exceed the authorized strength of the Academy is changed to

authorize the Secretary to ''fill the vacancies by nominating

additional midshipmen''. In exercising his discretion under this

subsection, these factors are necessarily considered by the

Secretary, irrespective of a specific provision so instructing him.

In subsection (f) the word ''admission'' is changed to the word

''appointment'', since the admission of a person is a consequence

of, and follows automatically from, his appointment. The statement

of reasons for failure to complete the course is omitted as

unnecessary.

The Secretary of the Navy may prescribe the amount to be credited

discharged before graduation while owing the United States for pay

advanced for the purchase of required clothing and equipment, he

shall turn in as much of his clothing and equipment of a

distinctively military nature as is necessary to repay the amount

advanced. If the value of the clothing and equipment turned in

(a) Whenever the Superintendent of the Naval Academy believes

that the continued presence of any midshipman at the Academy is

contrary to the best interest of the service, he shall report in

writing to the Secretary of the Navy a full statement of the facts

upon which his belief is based. If the Secretary determines from

the report that the Superintendent's belief is well founded, the

Secretary shall serve a copy of the report on the midshipman.

Within such time as the Secretary considers reasonable, the

midshipman shall show cause in writing why he should not be

dismissed from the Academy. The Secretary, after consideration of

any cause so shown, and with the written approval of the President,

may dismiss the midshipman from the Academy and from the naval

service.

(b) The truth of any issue of fact raised under subsection (a),

except as to the record of demerits, shall be determined by a court

of inquiry convened by the Secretary.

-STATUTE-

(a) In this chapter, the term ''hazing'' means any unauthorized

assumption of authority by a midshipman whereby another midshipman

suffers or is exposed to any cruelty, indignity, humiliation,

hardship, or oppression, or the deprivation or abridgement of any

right.

(b) The Superintendent of the Naval Academy shall prescribe

regulations, to be approved by the Secretary of the Navy, to

prevent hazing.

(c) Hazing is an offense that may be dealt with as an offense

against good order and discipline or as a violation of the

regulations of the Naval Academy. However, no midshipman may be

dismissed for a single act of hazing except by sentence of a

court-martial.

(d) The finding and sentence of a court-martial of a midshipman

for hazing shall be reviewed in the manner prescribed for general

court-martial cases.

(e) A midshipman who is sentenced to imprisonment for hazing may

not be confined with persons who have been convicted of crimes or

misdemeanors.

(f) A midshipman who is dismissed from the Academy for hazing may

not be reappointed as a midshipman or be appointed as a

commissioned officer in the Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine Corps

until two years after the graduation of the class of which he was a

member.

-------------------------------

In subsection (a) the words ''privilege, or advantage to which he

shall legally be entitled'' are omitted as surplusage, since they

are covered by the word ''right''. The definition in this

subsection is made applicable throughout the chapter to cover Sec.

6965 of this title, since the reference in that section to hazing

was also derived from the act which is the source for this

subsection.

In subsection (b) the words ''prescribe regulations * * * to

prevent hazing'' are substituted for the words ''make such rules *

* * as will effectually prevent the practice of hazing''.

In subsection (c) the words ''dealt with'' are substituted for

the words ''proceeded against, dealt with, and punished''. The

word ''regulations'' is substituted for the word ''rules'' for

uniformity and the words ''and breaches'' are omitted as

surplusage. The words ''except by sentence of a court-martial''

are substituted for the words ''except under the provisions of

section three of this Act'' because Sec. 3 of the source statute

provided for a Naval Academy court-martial with special provisions

for handling cases involving hazing. The enactment of the Uniform

Code of Military Justice made midshipmen at the Naval Academy

subject to the same military law which applies generally to the

naval service, thereby superseding the special type of

court-martial for midshipmen. A court-martial under the Uniform

Code of Military Justice has the power to sentence anyone convicted

by it to dismissal if authorized by the Table of Maximum

Punishments.

In subsections (d) and (e) all that part of the source text

preceding the proviso is omitted as superseded by the Uniform Code

of Military Justice. The words ''in a military or naval prison or

elsewhere'' are omitted as surplusage.

In subsection (a) the words ''A Board of Visitors to the Naval

In subsection (b) the language establishing staggered terms is

eliminated as executed, and the existence of such terms is

recognized by the use of the words ''two persons shall be

designated by him each year to succeed the members whose terms

expire that year''. No effect is given to the language ''the nine

Presidential appointees''. The hearings indicate that one of the

bills considered provided for nine such ''appointees'', and it

appears that the number nine was inadvertently retained. The

provision specifically authorizes only six Presidential designees.

Stat. 181.

-------------------------------

In subsection (a) the words ''of the Navy'' are supplied since

the requirement that the distribution in ratings be similar to that

in the United States Navy Band indicates that the Naval Academy

Band should not include members of the Marine Corps, and it is so

interpreted.

In subsection (b) the words ''an officer in the grade of warrant

officer, W-1,'' are substituted for the words ''a warrant officer''

because the Warrant Officer Act of 1954 established the grade of

warrant officer, W-1, in lieu of all the former warrant officer (as

distinguished from commissioned warrant officer) grades. The

second sentence covers that part of the second proviso which

relates to pay and makes reference to the Career Compensation Act

of 1949, since it is that Act which governs entitlement to basic

pay and the computation of cumulative years of creditable service.

Retirement rights and reenlistment bonuses referred to in the

second proviso are covered in the third sentence of this

subsection, giving recognition to the fact that the status of the

members who are assigned as leader and second leader of the band

remains unchanged in these respects.

AMENDMENTS

1962 - Subsec. (b). Pub. L. 87-649 repealed first and second
