Law:The Military Reserve Reformation Act
39RZ1 — The Military Reserve Reformation Act
WHEREAS The Naval Reorganization Act, 35RZ32, set forth guidelines governing the Department of Defence and
WHEREAS this same Act mandates that an Admiral must, upon appointment to the office of either Minister of Defence or Prime Minister, resign the appointment of Admiral and relinquish all privileges of rank and
WHEREAS that is kind of unfair since other Officers get to simply serve in inactive reserve status and
WHEREAS the position of Admiral is one that should not be left vacant while an Admiral serves as the Minister of Defence and
WHEREAS 36RZ7 contains no such requirement for the Captain of the Guard and
WHEREAS the Captain of the Guard is a post that should not be held by the Prime Minister or Minister of Defence and
WHEREAS the post should also not be left vacant while the Captain of Guard serves on inactive status as a Prime Minister or Minister of Defence and so
THEREFORE the positions of "Vice Admiral of the Fleet Reserve" and "Commandant" are hereby established. The position of Vice Admiral of the Fleet Reserve will hold the grade of O-5 like that of the Admiral, but shall exist only within the Inactive Reserves. The Position of Commandant shall be the equivalent rank to the Capitán d’Altahál but shall exist only within the Inactive Reserves.
- Any Admiral called to service as the Minister of Defence or Prime Minister shall have the option to resign the position of Admiral and accept the inactive reserve position of Vice Admiral of the Fleet Reserve. Anyone holding this rank shall be styled "Vice Admiral." No person may attain this rank without first having held the rank of "Admiral."
- Upon completion of service as Minister of Defence or Prime Minister, one may continue their service in the inactive reserves as a Vice Admiral of the Fleet until such time as they are eligible for retirement or are called back to active service as the Admiral.
- A Vice Admiral of the Fleet Reserve may return to active duty as a Commodore O-4 if not re-appointed to the position of Admiral and will serve in a command or staff position as determined by the Minister of Defence.
FURTHERMORE, 36RZ7 Section 2 subparagraph D is amended to read:
- El Capitán d’Altahál shall be appointed by the Minister of Defence upon recommendation of the Sovereign, and shall serve at the pleasure of the Sovereign. El Capitán d’Altahál shall be chosen from the voting citizens of the Kingdom who have actual infantry experience, as obtained through the Talossan Marine Corps or through service in the Army or Marine Corps (or their local equivalent) of any other nation. The Capitán d’Altahál shall not also hold the office of Prime Minister or Minister of Defence. If the Capitán d’Altahál should be called up to one of these positions, they shall be required to resign from their position for the duration of their service to the Prime Ministry or Ministry of Defence.
- When the Capitán d’Altahál is called up to service, s/he will have the option of assuming the Reserve position of Commandant. At the conclusion of their service as Prime Minister or Minister of Defence, they may remain in the Reserves at the Rank of Commandant until eligible for retirement in accordance with present military regulations or may return to Active Duty. In the event the position of Capitán d’Altahál is filled by another or the Commandant is not nominated to that position again, the Commandant may transfer to the Active Component of the Marine Corps with the rank of Capitán (Captain) and assigned to a command or staff position at the discretion of the Minister of Defence.
