Subtitle C--General Service Authorities

SEC. 521. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON THE UNIQUE NATURE, DEMANDS, AND HARDSHIPS OF MILITARY SERVICE.

    It is the sense of Congress that--

      (1) section 8 (clauses 12, 13, and 14) of Article I of the Constitution of the United States commits exclusively to Congress the powers to raise and support armies, provide and maintain a Navy, and make rules for the government and regulation of the land and naval forces;

      (2) there is no constitutional right to serve in the Armed Forces;

      (3) pursuant to the powers conferred by section 8 of article I of the Constitution of the United States, it lies within the discretion of the Congress to establish qualifications for and conditions of service in the Armed Forces;

      (4) the primary purpose of the Armed Forces is to prepare for and to prevail in combat should the need arise;

      (5) the conduct of military operations requires members of the Armed Forces to make extraordinary sacrifices, including the ultimate sacrifice, in order to provide for the common defense;

      (6) success in combat requires military units that are characterized by high morale, good order and discipline, and unit cohesion;

      (7) one of the most critical elements in combat capability is unit cohesion, that is, the bonds of trust among individual members of the Armed Forces that make the combat effectiveness of a military unit greater than the sum of the combat effectiveness of individual unit members;

      (8) military life is fundamentally different from civilian life in that--

        (A) the extraordinary responsibilities of the Armed Forces, the unique conditions of military service, and the critical role of unit cohesion require that the military community, while subject to civilian control, exist as a specialized society; and

        (B) the military society is characterized by its own laws, rules, customs, and traditions, including numerous restrictions on personal behavior, that would not be acceptable in civilian society;

      (9) the standards of conduct for members of the Armed Forces regulate a member’s life for 24 hours each day beginning at the moment the member enters military status and not ending until that person is discharged or otherwise separated from the Armed Forces;

      (10) those standards of conduct, including the Uniform Code of Military Justice, apply to a member of the Armed Forces at all times that the member has a military status, whether the member is on base or off base, and whether the member is on duty or off duty;

      (11) the pervasive application of the standards of conduct is necessary because members of the Armed Forces must be ready at all times for worldwide deployment to a combat environment;

      (12) the worldwide deployment of United States military forces, the international responsibilities of the United States, and the potential for involvement of the Armed Forces in actual combat routinely make it necessary for members of the Armed Forces involuntarily to accept living conditions and working conditions that are often spartan, primitive, and characterized by forced intimacy with little or no privacy; and

      (13) the Armed Forces must maintain personnel policies that are intended to recruit and retain only those persons whose presence in the Armed Forces serves the needs of the Armed Forces, contributes to the accomplishment of the missions of the Armed Forces, and maintains the high standards of the Armed Forces for morale, good order and discipline, and unit cohesion that are the essence of military capability.

SEC. 522. POLICY ADDRESSING DWELL TIME AND MEASUREMENT AND DATA COLLECTION REGARDING UNIT OPERATING TEMPO AND PERSONNEL TEMPO.

    (a) Policy Addressing Dwell Time- Subsection (a) of section 991 of title 10, United States Code, is amended by adding at the end the following new paragraph:

      ‘(A) establish a system for tracking and recording the number of days that each member of the armed forces is deployed;

      ‘(B) prescribe policies and procedures for measuring operating tempo and personnel tempo; and

      ‘(C) maintain a central data collection repository to provide information for research, actuarial analysis, interagency reporting, and evaluation of Department of Defense programs and policies.

    ‘(2) The data collection repository shall be able to identify--

      ‘(A) the active and reserve component units of the armed forces that are participating at the battalion, squadron, or an equivalent level (or a higher level) in contingency operations, major training events, and other exercises and contingencies of such a scale that the exercises and contingencies receive an official designation; and

      ‘(B) the duration of their participation.

    ‘(3) For each of the armed forces, the data collection repository shall be able to indicate, for a fiscal year--

      ‘(A) the number of members who received the high-deployment allowance under section 436 of title 37 (or who would have been eligible to receive the allowance if the duty assignment was not excluded by the Secretary of Defense);

      ‘(B) the number of members who received each rate of allowance paid (estimated in the case of members described in the parenthetical phrase in subparagraph (A));

      ‘(C) the number of months each member received the allowance (or would have received it in the case of members described in the parenthetical phrase in subparagraph (A)); and

      ‘(D) the total amount expended on the allowance.

    ‘(4) For each of the armed forces, the data collection repository shall be able to indicate, for a fiscal year, the number of days that high demand, low density units (as defined by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff) were deployed, and whether these units met the force goals for limiting deployments, as described in the personnel tempo policies applicable to that armed force.’.

    (c) Definitions- Such section is further amended by adding at the end the following new subsection:

    ‘(f) Other Definitions- In this section:

      ‘(1)(A) Subject to subparagraph (B), the term ‘dwell time’ means the time a member of the armed forces or a unit spends at the permanent duty station or home port after returning from a deployment.

      ‘(B) The Secretary of Defense may modify the definition of dwell time specified in subparagraph (A). If the Secretary establishes a different definition of such term, the Secretary shall transmit the new definition to Congress.

      ‘(2) The term ‘operating tempo’ means the rate at which units of the armed forces are involved in all military activities, including contingency operations, exercises, and training deployments.

      ‘(3) The term ‘personnel tempo’ means the amount of time members of the armed forces are engaged in their official duties at a location or under circumstances that make it infeasible for a member to spend off-duty time in the housing in which the member resides.’.

    (d) Clerical Amendments-

SEC. 524. NOTIFICATION REQUIREMENT FOR DETERMINATION MADE IN RESPONSE TO REVIEW OF PROPOSAL FOR AWARD OF MEDAL OF HONOR NOT PREVIOUSLY SUBMITTED IN TIMELY FASHION.

    Section 1130(b) of title 10, United States Code, is amended by adding at the end the following new sentence: ‘If the determination includes a favorable recommendation for the award of the Medal of Honor, the Secretary of Defense, instead of the Secretary concerned, shall make the submission under this subsection.’.
