(c)(1) A person who, before August 16, 1945, was a Reserve of an

armed force, or a member of the Army without component or other

34:440i(a) (last

proviso).

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

In subsection (a), the words ''is entitled'' are substituted for

the words ''shall * * * be granted''. The words ''in the status of

a commissioned officer, warrant officer, flight officer, or

enlisted person'' and the references to reserve components are

omitted as surplusage. Reference to the Army and the Air Force

without component is inserted, since the words ''reserve

component'', as used in 10:1036a(a), include all members of the

Army and the Air Force except members of the regular components

thereof. The words ''service, computed under section 1332 of this

title'' are substituted for the words ''satisfactory Federal

service'' to make it clear that some service that is not normally

covered by the latter term may be counted in determining rights to

retired pay under this chapter. Section 311 of the source statute,

which made title III of that act applicable to the Coast Guard, was

expressly repealed by the Act of August 4, 1949, ch. 393, Sec. 20,

63 Stat. 565, the act which codified Title 14 of the United States

Code. 14 U.S.C. 755(e) provides for Coast Guard Reservists the same

retirement benefits as those prescribed by law for the Naval

Reserve, and, for this purpose, confers upon the Secretary of the

Treasury the same authority as that conferred upon the Secretary of

the Navy, when the Coast Guard is operating under the Treasury

Department. Accordingly, the revised chapter is made expressly

applicable to the Coast Guard.

In subsection (c), the words ''the Army without component or

other category covered by section 1332(a)(1) of this title'' are

inserted, since the words ''reserve component'', as used in

10:1036a(a), also cover members without component and members of

the other special categories listed. The words ''annual training

duty, or attendance at a school designated as a service school by

law or by the Secretary of the appropriate military department''

are inserted since the words ''active Federal service'', as used in

10:1036a(a), also cover the additional service listed. The words

''active duty'' are substituted for the words ''active Federal

service'' for uniformity.

1958 ACT

The change makes clear that in the determination of eligibility

for retired pay for non-regular service, the service of a Regular

serving in a temporary grade (that is, without component) may not

be counted. See opinion of the Judge Advocate General of the Army,

JAGA 1957/4463, May 13, 1957.

AMENDMENTS

2002 - Subsec. (a)(3). Pub. L. 107-314, Sec. 631(a), substituted

1994,'' for ''the date of the enactment of this subsection''.

of this title as this section and amended text generally, making

changes in style and in references to other sections.

Subsec. (f). Pub. L. 103-337, Sec. 636, added subsec. (f) which

read as follows: ''In the case of a person who completes the

service requirements of subsection (a)(2) during the period

beginning on the date of the enactment of this subsection and

ending on September 30, 1999, the provisions of subsection (a)(3)

shall be applied by substituting 'the last six years' for 'the last

eight years'.''

of that chapter,'' after ''this title''.

''(1) he performed active duty after April 5, 1917, and before

November 12, 1918, or after September 8, 1940, and before January

1, 1947; or

''(2) he performed active duty (other than for training) after

and before May 31, 1963, or after August 4, 1964, and before

for ''unless he performed active duty after April 5, 1917, and

before November 12, 1918, or after September 8, 1940, and before

''Secretary of Transportation'' for ''Secretary of the Treasury''.

States Code,'' after ''title 5,''.

1978 - Subsec. (d). Pub. L. 95-397 inserted provisions requiring

that notice include notification of elections available under the

Survivor Benefit Plan and the effects thereof.

1966 - Subsec. (d). Pub. L. 89-652 added subsec. (d).

may -

(1) during the period described in subsection (b), determine to

treat a member of the Selected Reserve of a reserve component of

the armed force under the jurisdiction of that Secretary as

having met the service requirements of subsection (a)(2) of that

section and provide the member with the notification required by

subsection (d) of that section if the member -

(A) as of October 1, 1991, has completed at least 15, and

less than 20, years of service computed under section 12732 of

this title; or

(B) after that date and before the end of the period

transfer the member to the Retired Reserve.

(a)(1) is the period beginning on October 23, 1992, and ending on

December 31, 2001.

(c) Applicability Subject to Needs of the Service. - (1) The

Secretary concerned may limit the applicability of subsection (a)

to any category of personnel defined by the Secretary in order to

meet a need of the armed force under the jurisdiction of the

Secretary to reduce the number of members in certain grades, the

number of members who have completed a certain number of years of

service, or the number of members who possess certain military

skills or are serving in designated competitive categories.

(2) A limitation under paragraph (1) shall be consistent with the

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

Subsection (a) consolidates the provisions of 10:1036a and

1036e(b)-(d), and 34:440i and 440m(b)-(d), relating to service that

may be counted in determining eligibility for retired pay under

this chapter. 10:1036e(a) and 34:440m(a) are omitted as covered by

the enumeration of the service that may be counted for the purposes

of the revised section.

In subsection (a)(1)(A)-(F), the requirement that the service

must have been satisfactory is omitted as executed, since all

service before July 1, 1949, has been found to have been

satisfactory by the Secretaries concerned.

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

substituted for clauses (1), (2), (5)-(7), (9), (10), and

(13)-(16), of 10:1036e(c) and 34:440m(c), and so much of clause (8)

of 10:1036e(c) and 34:440m(c) as relates to the Naval Reserve and

the Naval Reserve Force as constituted after February 28, 1925,

since the service covered by those clauses when added to service in

the regular components, comprises all service in the armed forces.

In subsection (a)(1)(B)-(C), the words ''June 15'' are inserted

to reflect the exact date of the change in National Guard status

made by section 5 of the Act of June 15, 1933, ch. 87, 48 Stat.

155, which established the National Guard of the United States as a

reserve component of the Army.

In subsection (a)(1)(D), 10:1036e(c)(8) (last 25 words),

10:1036e(c)(9) (last 22 words), 34:440m(c)(8) (last 25 words), and

34:440m(c)(9) (last 22 words) are omitted as covered by subsection

(b)(5).

In subsection (a)(2)(A), the words ''service that conformed to

required standards and qualifications'' are substituted for

10:1036e(b) and 34:440m(b). In clause (a)(2)(A), 10:1036e(d) and

34:440m(d), which make it clear that ''active Federal service'', in

the sense in which that term is used in 10:1036a-e and 34:440i-m,

includes annual training duty and attendance at service schools,

are omitted as covered by sections 101(22) and 101(24) of this

title.

In subsection (a)(2)(A) and (B), specific reference is made to

National Guard service to reflect the opinion of the Judge Advocate

General of the Army (JAGA, 1956/1908, 13 Feb. 1956).

In subsection (a)(2)(C), the words ''other than active Federal

service'' are omitted, since the points for membership are not

reduced by active duty (see opinion of the Judge Advocate General

of the Army (JAGA, 1953/2016, 3 Mar. 1953)).

In subsections (a) and (b), the words ''active service'' are

substituted for the words ''active Federal service'' for uniformity

of expression. In clause (5), the words ''transferred thereto

after completion of 16 or more years of active naval service'' are

omitted, since other authorized fleet reserve categories have not

been used and authority for them is omitted from this revised title

as unnecessary.

Subsection (b)(1)-(4) is inserted because of 10:1036e(e) and (f)

and 34:440m(e) and (f), which state that the service enumerated in

those clauses may not be considered in determining eligibility for

retired pay under this chapter. Clause (5) is based on the

exclusions in 34:440m(c)(8)-(9).

Subsection (b)(6) is inserted for clarity since 10:1036a and

34:440i were limited in applicability to service in the status of a

''commissioned officer, warrant officer, flight officer, or

enlisted person.''

1958 ACT

The word ''full-time'' is inserted for clarity. The other change

reflects the opinion of the Judge Advocate General of the Army

(JAGA 1956/1908, Feb. 13, 1956) that duty performed under section

92 of the National Defense Act, the source statute for section 502

of title 32, was creditable in determining entitlement to retired

pay under section 302 of the Army and Air Force Vitalization and

Retirement Equalization Act of 1948 (62 Stat. 1087), the source

statute for section 1332 of title 10.
