Regular Navy, lieutenants and lieutenants (junior g r a d e); Regular Marine Corps, captains and first lieut e n a n t s: discharge for failures of selection for promotion; severance pay (a) Each officer on the active list of the Navy serving in the grade of lieutenant, except an officer in the Nurse Corps, and each officer on the active list of the Marine Corps serving in the grade of captain shall be honorably discharged on June 30 of the fiscal year in which he is considered as having failed of selection for promotion to the grade of lieutenant commander or major for the second time. (b) Each officer on the active list of the Navy serving in the grade of lieutenant (junior grade) and each officer on the active list of the Marine Corps serving in the grade of first lieutenant shall be honorably discharged on June 30 of the fiscal year in which he is considered as having failed of selection for promotion to the grade of lieutenant or captain for the second time.

The acceptance of a lump-sum payment under this section does not deprive a person of any retirement benefits from the United States.
