See the Notes section for a listing of Executive Orders affected by or related to the issuance of this Executive Order.

Whereas, by Executive Order No. 9048 of February 3, 1942, and Executive Order No. 9267 of November 9, 1942, the limitations prescribed by the Table of Maximum Punishments, paragraph 104 (c) of A Manual for Courts-Martial, United States Army (1928), for violations of Articles of War 58, 59, 61 and 86, relating, respectively, to desertion, aiding or advising another to desert, absence without leave, and misbehavior of sentinels, were suspended until further order as to offenses committed after the effective dates of such orders; and

Whereas, it is deemed no longer necessary or desirable to continue such suspension of the maximum limitations of punishments for the offenses denounced by said Article of War, except as to offenses committed within occupied enemy territory:

Now, Therefore, by virtue of the authority vested in me by Article of War 45, Chapter II, act of June 4, 1920, 41 Stat. 759, 796, and as President of the United States, it is hereby ordered as follows:


  1. The suspensions of limitations upon punishments for violations of Articles of War 58, 59, 61 and 86, provided by Executive Order No. 9048 of February 3, 1942, and Executive Order No. 9267 of November 9, 1942, are hereby terminated as to offenses committed after the effective date of this order except as to offenses heretofore or hereafter committed within occupied enemy territory which offenses are hereby specifically exempted from the provisions of this order.

  2. Punishments for violations of Articles of War 58, 59, 61, and 86, except as to offenses heretofore or hereafter committed in occupied enemy territory, shall be subject to the limitations prescribed by the Table of Maximum Punishments, paragraph 104 (c) of A Manual for Courts-Martial, United States Army (1928).


This order shall be effective as of the date hereof.
