consideration by the board.

(b) Composition. - At least one-half of the members of such a

officer of that competitive category on the reserve active-status

list or the active-duty list in a permanent grade higher than the

grade of the officers to be considered by the board and otherwise

eligible to serve on the board. However, in such a case, the

Secretary of the military department concerned, in his discretion,

may appoint as a member of the board a retired officer of that

competitive category who is in the same armed force as the officers

under consideration by the board who holds a higher grade than the

grade of the officers under consideration.

(d) Prohibition of Service on Consecutive Promotion Boards. - No

officer may be a member of two successive promotion boards convened

the case of a report returned to a board pursuant to section

that the board acted contrary to law, regulation, or guidelines,

the Secretary may modify, withdraw, or supplement such information

or guidelines as part of a written explanation to the board as

provided in that section.

(d) Officers in Health-Professions Competitive Categories. - The

Secretary of each military department, under uniform regulations

competitive category for promotion to a grade below colonel or, in

the case of officers of the Naval Reserve, captain, a direction

final review of the report of a selection board under section 14110

of this title, shall submit the report with the Secretary's

recommendations, to the Secretary of Defense for transmittal by the

Secretary to the President for approval or disapproval. If the

authority of the President to approve or disapprove the report of a

promotion board is delegated to the Secretary of Defense, that

authority may not be redelegated except to an official in the

Office of the Secretary of Defense.

(b) Removal of Name From Board Report. - The name of an officer

recommended for promotion by a selection board may be removed from

the report of the selection board only by the President.

(c) Recommendations for Removal of Selected Officers From Report.

- If the Secretary of a military department or the Secretary of

Defense makes a recommendation under this section that the name of

an officer be removed from the report of a promotion board and the

recommendation is accompanied by information that was not presented

to that promotion board, that information shall be made available

to that officer. The officer shall then be afforded a reasonable

opportunity to submit comments on that information to the officials

making the recommendation and the officials reviewing the

recommendation. If an eligible officer cannot be given access to

such information because of its classification status, the officer

shall, to the maximum extent practicable, be provided with an

appropriate summary of the information.
