(i) For the purpose of this section, each officer is counted in the grade in which he is serving, whether under a permanent or a temporary appointment. However, each officer serving under an appointment in the grade of admiral or vice admiral and each officer in a grade to which he was appointed under section 5597 or promoted under section 5787 of this title is counted in the grade he would hold had he not been so appointed or promoted. § 5443. Marine Corps: officers on active duty (a) Of the total number of officers serving on active duty in the Marine Corps in the grade of second lieutenant and above, excluding officers carried as additional numbers in grade, the number of officers who may serve in each of the grades above captain may not, except as provided in subsections (b) and (c), exceed a number appropriate to the total number as set forth in the following table. If the total number of officers serving on active duty in the grade of second lieutenant and above, excluding officers carried as additional numbers in grade, falls between two strengths shown in the first column of the table, the number for each grade is determined by proportionate interpolation between the respective numbers for the two strengths. Total officers serving on active duty In Brigadier general the grade of second lieutenant and and major above, excluding officers carried as general additional numbers in grade 10,000 12.500 15.000 17,500 20.000 22.500 25.000 27. 500 30,000 32.,500 35.000

(b) The Secretary of the Navy, whenever the needs of the service require but at least once annually, shall compute the number of officers authorized under subsection (a) for the grades of major general and brigadier general. A t the time of making this computation, the Secretary shall also determine the number of officers required to meet the needs of the service in each of those grades. The number so determined for each grade is the number of officers on active duty, excluding officers carried as additional numbers in grade, prescribed for that grade. However, the prescribed number for the grade of major general may not exceed 50 percent of the sum of the prescribed numbers for that grade and the grade of brigadier general, and the sum of the prescribed numbers may not exceed the number authorized for brigadier general and major general under subsection (a).
