313 §5453. Marine Corps: women officers on the active list; permanent grade The numbers of women officers on the active list of the Marine Corps holding permanent appointments in the grades of lieutenant colonel and major may not exceed, respectively, 10 percent and 20 percent of the number of women officers on the active list of the Marine Corps. The Secretary of the Navy, as of January 1 of each year, shall compute the number of women officers authorized under this section to hold permanent appointments in each of these grades. The number so determined for each grade is the number of women officers on the active list of the Marine Corps prescribed for that permanent grade. The Secretary may, however, determine a lesser number for each grade. A lesser number so determined becomes the prescribed number for the grade concerned until the next annual computation is made. During the period between one annual computation and the next succeeding computation, the niunber of officers prescribed for the graae of major, as computed or determined under this section, is temporarily increased by the number of officers of that grade for whom vacancies exist in the grade of lieutenant colonel but whose promotion to the grade of lieutenant colonel has been delayed for any reason. § 5454. Computations: rule when fraction occurs in final result When there is a fraction in the final result of any computation under this chapter, a fraction of one-half or more is counted as one, and a fraction of less than one-half is disregarded. §5455. Computations and determinations: effect on status of officers No computation or determination under section 5447, 5448, 5449, 5452, or 5453 of this title may reduce the grade or pay of any officer or remove any officer from the active list. § 5456. Naval Reserve and Marine Corps Reserve Subject to the authorized strengths of the Naval Reserve and the Marine Corps Reserve, the number of members of the Naval Reserve and the Marine Corps Reserve that may be in each grade is that which the Secretary of the Navy determines to be necessary to provide for mobilization requirements. The Secretary shall review these determinations at least once each year and revise them if he considers it necessary. However, no member of the Naval Reserve or the Marine Corps Reserve may be reduced in permanent grade, without his consent, as a result of such a determination.
