63 STAT.] 81ST CONG. , 1sT SESS.-CH. 393-AUG. 4, 1949 523 § 363. Retiring or dropping for disabilities not incident to service Any enlisted man found by a retiring board to be incapacitated for active service for reasons not incident to service shall, if the findings of the retiring board are approved by the Secretary, be dropped from the service with or without one year's pay, as determined by the Secretary. § 364. Dropping for disabilities due to vicious habits Any enlisted man found by a retiring board to be incapacitated for active service because of his own vicious habits, shall, if the findings of the retiring board are approved by the Secretary, be dropped from the service. § 365. Extension of enlistments Under regulations prescribed by the Secretary, the term of enlist- ment of any enlisted man may, by voluntary written agreement, be extended for a period not exceeding four full years from the date of expiration of the then-existing term of enlistment, and subsequent to such date an enlisted man who so extends his term of enlistment shall receive the same pay and allowances in all respects as though regularly discharged and reenlisted immediately upon expiration of his term of enlistment. No such extension shall operate to deprive the enlisted man concerned, upon discharge at the termination thereof, of any right, privilege, or benefit to which he would have been entitled if his term of enlistment had not been so extended. § 366. Retention beyond term of enlistment in case of disability Any enlisted man of the Coast Guard in the active service whose term of enlistment expires while he is suffering disease or injury inci- dent to service and not due to misconduct, and who is in need of medical care or hospitalization, may, with his consent, be retained in such service beyond the expiration of his term of enlistment. Any such enlisted man shall be entitled to receive at Government expense medical care or hospitalization and his pay and allowances, including credit for longevity, until he shall have recovered to such extent as would enable him to meet the physical requirements for reenlistment, or until it shall have been ascertained by competent authority of the Coast Guard that the disease or injury is of a character that recovery to such an extent would be impossible. Any enlisted man whose enlist- ment is so extended shall be subject to forfeitures in the same manner and to the same extent as if his term of enlistment had not expired. Nothing contained in this section shall prevent any enlisted man from being held in the service without his consent under section 367 of this title. § 367. Detention beyond term of enlistment (a) Under regulations prescribed by the Secretary, an enlisted man may be detained in the Coast Guard beyond the term of his enlistment: (1) until the first arrival of the vessel on which he is 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 conti- nental limits of the United States or in Alaska, whichever is earlier, but in no event to exceed three months; or
