HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

This chapter, dealing with the appointment, enlistment,

promotion, retirement and recall of all military personnel, covers

subject matter which has been greatly affected by war-time

legislation and, therefore, has required rather extensive rewriting

of existing law in order to correlate all of the various

provisions. An attempt has been made to provide for enlisted men

and warrant officers in a manner similar to the way that

commissioned officers are provided for; for example, the act of

February 21, 1946, ch. 34, 60 Stat. 29 (title 14, U.S.C., 1946 ed.,

Sec. 162a), made provision for the retirement of commissioned

officers on half pay after twenty years naval service, and a prewar

statute provided for twenty year retirement of enlisted men on half

pay. This leaves warrant officers the only military group not

eligible for retirement in twenty years, and a provision such as

found in section 305 of this title, granting such retirement, seems

clearly indicated in order to avoid unjust discrimination.

The subject matter seemed to break down into the sub-heads of

''Commissioned Officers'', ''Warrant Officers'', ''Enlisted Men'',

and ''General Provisions''. Each of the first three sub-heads

parallels the other two, insofar as the applicability of statutes

of the three groups permits. The last sub-head includes the broad

provisions which, in the same terms, can be made applicable to all

military personnel. In accord with existing Navy and Coast Guard

law, the term ''commissioned officer'' includes commissioned

warrant officers unless specifically excepted, or manifestly

inapplicable. Heretofore Coast Guard statutes have designated

commissioned warrant officers as chief warrant officers; in line

with Navy designation it is changed to commissioned warrant

officers throughout this title. Terms such as ''Coast Guard

personnel'' or ''personnel of the Coast Guard'', as used throughout

this title, are intended to include all employees of the Service,

civilian and military. 81st Congress, House Report No. 557.

pay to which he is entitled at the time of separation.

by multiplying his years of active service that could be credited

to him under section 511 of the Career Compensation Act of 1949, as

amended, but not more than 12, by the monthly basic pay to which he

is entitled at the time of separation, unless the Secretary

determines that the conditions under which the officer is

discharged or separated do not warrant payment of that amount of

severance pay.

(c) For the purposes of this section, a part of the year that is

six months or more is counted as a whole year, and a part of a year

that is less than six months is disregarded.

(d) The acceptance of severance pay under this section does not

However, there shall be deducted from each of his retirement

payments so much thereof as is based on the service for which he

has received severance pay under this section, until the total

deductions equal the amount of such severance pay.

1949 ACT

Based on title 14, U.S.C., 1946 ed., Sec. 35, 35a, 206 (May 26,

1906, ch. 2556, Sec. 1, 34 Stat. 200; Jan. 28, 1915, ch. 20, Sec.

Sec. 8, 55 Stat. 586; Aug. 18, 1941, ch. 364, Sec. 3, 55 Stat.

629).

Section 35 of title 14, U.S.C., 1946 ed., has been divided. The

provisions of the first sentence of subsection (a) are placed in

this section. The proviso of subsection (a) is covered in section

367(b) of this title. Subsection (b) is placed in section 365 of

this title. Subsections (c) and (d) are placed in section 367(a)

of this title, except that part (3) of subsection (c) is covered by

section 366 of this title.

Section 206 of title 14, U.S.C., 1946 ed., has been divided.

That part dealing with special temporary enlistments is

incorporated in this section. That part dealing with temporary

appointments of warrant officers is placed in section 302 of this

title.

Certain additional details concerning the two types of

enlistments are added; these details were previously covered in

Coast Guard Regulations.

This section makes provision for the enlistment of personnel in

the Coast Guard. The first sentence grants the necessary authority

to the Secretary, changes existing law in regard to the term of

enlistment from ''not to exceed four years'' to ''not to exceed six

years'', and adds a provision for the enlistment of minors for

their minority only, such provision being in accordance with

existing law applicable to the Navy. The next three sentences

establish and define the two types of enlistments that are now in

effect in the Coast Guard, setting forth the basic difference in

the two types. The last sentence continues a provision to the

effect that original enlistments in the Coast Guard shall be

temporary. This section is a combination of existing law and

regulations in regard to enlistments, with changes as noted above.

AMENDMENTS

1991 - Pub. L. 102-241 substituted ''Involuntary retirement of

enlisted members'' for ''Enlisted Personnel Board'' in section

catchline and amended text generally. Prior to amendment, text

provided that the Commandant assemble annually a Coast Guard

Enlisted Personnel Board to recommend enlisted members for

retirement, that the recommendations be transmitted to the

Commandant for approval, in which event the enlisted members

concerned would be notified and given opportunity to file a written

protest, which would require a subsequent annual Board

determination and approval by the Commandant to effect the

involuntary retirement of that member, and further provided that an

enlisted member with twenty years' service retired from active duty

by the Commandant pursuant to this section was to receive retired

pay, and that an enlisted member voluntarily or involuntarily

retired by reason of twenty years' service who had been cited for

extraordinary heroism was entitled to an increase in retired pay.

1986 - Subsec. (b). Pub. L. 99-348, Sec. 205(b)(9)(A),

substituted ''retired pay'' for ''the retired pay of the grade or

rating with which retired''.

provision that retired pay be increased by an amount equal to 10

percent of the active-duty pay and permanent additions thereto of

the grade or rating with which retired, in the case of a member

whose retired pay is computed under 423(a) of this title, or the

member's retired pay base under section 1407 of title 10, in the

case of a member whose retired pay is computed under section 423(b)

of this title for provision that the retired pay be increased by an

amount equal to 10 per cent of the active-duty pay and permanent

additions thereto of the grade or rating with which retired.

1984 - Pub. L. 98-557, Sec. 15(a)(3)(A), substituted reference to

enlisted member for reference to enlisted man wherever appearing in

subsecs. (a) to (c).

Subsec. (a). Pub. L. 98-557, Sec. 15(a)(3)(B), substituted

reference to enlisted members for reference to enlisted men in two

places.

1963 - Subsec. (c). Pub. L. 88-114 struck out provisions which

entitled enlisted men whose average marks in conduct were not less

than 97 1/2 percent of the maximum to a 10-percent increase of

their retired pay.

1950 - Subsec. (c). Act Aug. 3, 1950, substituted ''years' '' for

''years''.

SERVICE CREDIT FOR CERTAIN ENLISTED PERSONNEL

Act June 3, 1948, ch. 394, 62 Stat. 302, provided: ''That those

enlisted men of the Coast Guard who, during 1940 and 1941, were

discharged from the Coast Guard to accept employment as policemen

and guards at the Ivigtut Cryolite Mine, Greenland, and who

reenlisted in the Coast Guard within three months after the

termination of their service as such policemen and guards, shall be

credited with the time between discharge and reenlistment for

purposes of longevity pay and retirement, but no increased

retroactive pay shall accrue by reason of the enactment of this

Act.''

ENLISTED MEN IN SERVICE ON SEPTEMBER 6, 1963

Section 2 of Pub. L. 88-114 provided that: ''The amendment made

by subsection (1) of section 1 of this Act (amending this section)

does not apply to any enlisted man in service on the effective date

of this Act (Sept. 6, 1963).''

Said sections have application to officers only, but in accord

applicable both to officers and men, it seems highly desirable to

provide similarly for enlisted men - a fortiori because there are

cases in the Coast Guard in which enlisted men are suffering

inequitably because there is no provision for advancing men on the

on active duty after recall from the retired list. 81st Congress,

serving at its permanent station, or at a port in a State of the

United States or in the District of Columbia; or

(2) if attached to a shore station beyond the continental

limits of the United States or in Alaska, until his first arrival

at a port in any State of the United States or in the District of

Columbia where his reenlistment or discharge may be effected, or

until he can be discharged or reenlisted at his station beyond

the continental limits of the United States or in Alaska,

whichever is earlier, but in no event to exceed three months; or

(3) during a period of war or national emergency as proclaimed

by the President, and, in the interest of national defense, for a

period not to exceed six months after the end of the war or the

Any member detained in the Coast Guard as provided in this section

shall be entitled to receive pay and allowances and benefits under

the same conditions as though his enlistment period had not

expired, and shall be subject in all respects to the laws and

HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

Subsection (a) is new in this form, but the provision contained

therein is expressed or implied in numerous statutes relating to

the retirement of military personnel.

A provision defining the next higher grade to that of

commissioned warrant officer as lieutenant (junior grade), for

purposes of retirement, was added.

The other provisions of said section are obsolete and are no

longer needed.

Subsection (a) is new, but the provision contained in it is

expressed or implied in numerous statutes relating to retirement of

military personnel. It is believed desirable to include such a

provision to prevent any misconstruction of retirement statutes,

even though no change in existing law is intended on the point

covered, either by other sections dealing with retirement or by

this section.

Subsection (b) is a codification of the only provision of title

14, U.S.C., 1946 ed., Sec. 174, that it is desired to retain, and

in addition designated the next higher grade for commissioned

warrant officers as lieutenant (junior grade) because the pay of

the commissioned warrant officers is the same as for the grade of

lieutenant (junior grade) and advancing such officers to the grade

of ensign would in some aspects not appear to be a promotion. 81st

Congress, House Report No. 557.

Sec. 423. Computation of retired pay

-STATUTE-

(a)(1) The retired pay of a member who first became a member of a

uniformed service (as defined in section 101 of title 10) before

September 8, 1980, is determined by multiplying -

(A) the sum of -

(i) the basic pay of the member's retired grade or rate, and

(ii) all permanent additions thereto including longevity

credit to which the member was entitled at the time of

retirement; by

(B) the retired pay multiplier determined under section 1409 of

title 10 for the number of years of service that may be credited

to the member under section 1405 of such title.

(2) In the case of an officer who served as Commandant of the

Coast Guard, retired pay under paragraph (1) shall be computed at

the highest rate of basic pay applicable to the officer while so

serving.

(3) In the case of an enlisted member who served as the master

chief petty officer of the Coast Guard, retired pay under paragraph

(1) shall be computed at the highest rate of basic pay to which the

member was entitled while so serving, if that basic pay is greater

than the basic pay of the grade or rate to which the member is

otherwise entitled at the time of retirement.

(4) In the case of an officer whose retired pay is computed on

the pay of a grade for which basic pay is not based upon years of

service, retired pay under paragraph (1) shall be computed on the

basis of the number of years of service for which the officer would

be entitled to credit in the computation of pay on the active list

had the officer been serving in the grade of captain at the time of

retirement.

(b) The retired pay of a member who first became a member of a

uniformed service (as defined in section 101 of title 10) on or

after September 8, 1980, is determined by multiplying -

(1) the retired pay base determined under section 1407 of title

10; by

(2) the retired pay multiplier determined under section 1409 of

title 10 for the number of years of service that may be credited

to the member under section 1405 of such title.

(c)(1) In computing for the purpose of subsection (a) or (b) the

number of years of service that may be credited to a member under

section 1405 of title 10 -

(A) each full month of service that is in addition to the

number of full years of service creditable to the member shall be

counted as 1/12 of a year; and

(B) any remaining fractional part of a month shall be

disregarded.

(2) Retired pay computed under this section, if not a multiple of

$1, shall be rounded to the next lower multiple of $1.

basic pay of that grade or rating and all permanent additions

thereto including longevity credit, multiplied by the number of

years of service credited, with certain exceptions, and that

retired pay of an officer or member of the Coast Guard who first

became a member of a uniformed service, as defined in section

1407(a)(2) of title 10, after Sept. 7, 1980, would be computed at

the rate of 2 1/2 percent of the monthly retired pay base computed

under section 1407(f) of title 10, multiplied by the number of

years of service credited, but that retired pay was not to be more

than 75 percent of such monthly retired pay base.

fractional part of a month is disregarded'' for ''A fractional year

of six months or more shall be considered a full year in computing

the number of years of service by which the rate of 2 1/2 percent

is multiplied''.

1972 - Pub. L. 92-455 provided for computation of retired pay of

an enlisted member serving as the master chief petty officer of the

Coast Guard at the highest basic pay applicable to him while he so

served, if that basic pay is greater than the basic pay of the

grade or rating to which he was otherwise entitled at the time of

retirement.

wherever appearing.

1958 - Pub. L. 85-422 substituted ''that may be credited to him

TITLE 14 - COAST GUARD

PART I - REGULAR COAST GUARD

CHAPTER 11 - PERSONNEL

SPECIAL PROVISIONS

-HEAD-

Sec. 432. Personnel of former Lighthouse Service

-STATUTE-

(a) Any person of the former Lighthouse Service commissioned as

an officer in the Coast Guard shall be an extra number in his grade

and in the grades to which he may be promoted. He shall take

precedence (1) with other officers commissioned in his grade from

the former Lighthouse Service as the Secretary of the Treasury may

determine, and (2) with other line officers in his grade in

accordance with the respective dates of their commissions in such

grade. He shall be eligible for promotion, if otherwise qualified,

at such time as the officer in a regular number in line of

promotion next above him on the seniority list becomes eligible for

promotion; or if there be no such officer in his grade, he shall be

eligible for promotion, if otherwise qualified, when a vacancy

occurs in the next higher grade. An officer so commissioned shall

be assigned to duty for which he is specially qualified, and

professional examinations for promotion given to such officer shall

embrace only subjects which pertain to the duty to which he is

assigned.

(b) Each vacancy (1) hereafter occurring in the extra numbers of

such officers; (2) existing on August 5, 1939, in positions in the

Lighthouse Service formerly held by personnel eligible for such

commissions; and (3) created by the retirement, resignation, death,

or separation from the service for any other cause, of such

personnel who do not possess the qualifications prescribed by the

Secretary of the Treasury or who, being qualified, do not accept a

commission thereunder, shall operate to increase by one the total

authorized number of line officers of the Coast Guard.

(c) All persons of the former Lighthouse Service commissioned,

appointed, or enlisted in the Coast Guard shall be subject to all

laws and regulations for the government of the Coast Guard, and

nothing contained in this title shall be construed to prevent the

application to any of such persons of laws and regulations

concerning the military discipline of commissioned and warrant

officers and enlisted members of the Coast Guard.

(d) In computing length of service, for the purpose of retirement

in the Coast Guard, of any person of the former Lighthouse Service

commissioned, appointed, or enlisted in the Coast Guard, there

shall be included all service computable for retirement under the

provisions of section 763 of title 33; and after July 1, 1948, in

computing longevity for the purpose of pay of such person there

shall be included all service of such person in the Lighthouse

Service.

(e) No person so commissioned, appointed, or enlisted in the

Coast Guard shall suffer any reduction in the total of the annual

compensation and allowances which he was receiving on the date of

his commission, appointment, or enlistment. Upon his retirement

from active duty in the Coast Guard, the retired pay of any person

so commissioned, appointed, or enlisted, shall not be less than an

annuity computed in accordance with the provisions of section 763

of title 33, substituting, however, for purposes of such

computation, the annual compensation which he was receiving on the

date of his commission, appointment, or enlistment in the Coast

Guard for the average annual pay received by him for the last five

years of service.

(f) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, chapter 51,

subchapter III of chapter 53, and sections 5542-5546 of title 5

shall not apply to civilian keepers of lighthouses and to civilians

employed on lightships and other vessels of the Coast Guard.

(g)(1) The head of the department in which the Coast Guard is

operating under regulations prescribed by him, may regulate the

hours of duty and the pay of civilian keepers of lighthouses and

civilians employed on lightships and other vessels of the Coast

Guard, but such personnel may be called upon for duty in emergency

circumstances or otherwise at any time or all times. The existing

system governing the pay of such employees may be continued or

changed except that overtime compensation, night differential, and

extra pay for duty on holidays shall not be paid to such

employees. In lieu thereof additional annual compensation may be

authorized, which may be prescribed either as a fixed differential

or as a percentage of the basic compensation otherwise applicable

to such employees. In no case shall basic compensation exceed

$15,000 per annum, except that nothing contained in this subsection

shall operate to decrease the basic compensation of any person

employed by the Coast Guard on the date of enactment of this

subsection, and in no case shall additions thereto exceed 25

percent of such basic compensation. Provision may be made for

compensatory absence from duty when conditions of employment result

in confinement because of isolation or in long periods of

continuous duty; and provisions may likewise be made for extra

allowance for service outside of the continental limits of the

United States.

(2) The additional compensation authorized by this subsection

shall be included in any computation of compensation under section

6 of the Act of June 20, 1918 (33 U.S.C. 763).
