By virtue of the authority vested in me by sections 301 (a) and (f), 305, and 403 of title 37, United States Code, and as President of the United States and Commander in Chief of the armed forces of the United States, it is hereby ordered as follows:

In the case of nuclear-powered submarines this entitlement shall include periods of training and rehabilitation after assignment thereto. A member who, pursuant to competent orders, performs duty as an operator or crew member of an operational, self-propelled submersible, including undersea exploration and research vehicles, shall likewise be entitled to receive incentive pay for the performance of submarine duty."
(b) Section 8(a) is amended to read as follows:
"(a) As used in section 301 (a) of title 37 of the United States Code, the term 'duty involving parachute jumping as an essential part of military duty' shall be construed to mean duty performed by members who, under such regulations as the Secretary concerned may prescribe, have received a rating as a parachutist or parachute rigger, or are undergoing training for such a rating, and who are required by competent orders to engage in parachute jumping from an aircraft in aerial flight."
(c) Section 9 is amended by striking out subsections (c), (d), and (g) and amending subsection (e) to read as follows:

(e) Sections 12 and 13 are redesignated as sections "13" and "14", respectively, and the following new section is added:

(a) The title is amended to read as follows:
"REGULATIONS RELATING TO SPECIAL PAY FOR SEA DUTY AND DUTY AT CERTAIN PLACES".

"SEC. 4. Enlisted members entitled to receive basic pay shall be entitled to receive additionally, pay under the rates prescribed by section 305 (a) of title 37 of the United States Code, while on duty at places that are outside the contiguous 48 States and the District of Columbia and that are designated for this purpose by the Secretary of Defense or, in the case of enlisted members of the Coast Guard when it is not operating as a service in the Navy, by the Secretary of the Treasury. Subject to the provisions of section 305 of title 37 of the United States Code, an enlisted member who is permanently assigned to duty at a place so designated is entitled to receive that pay during a period of authorized leave, temporary additional duty, temporary duty, or hospitalization, or while on an operational aircraft flight, but not for more than thirty days while he is away from that place.
"SEC. 5. Unless otherwise entitled to special pay in accordance with the last sentence of section 4, during periods spent on temporary additional duty or temporary duty, or on operational aircraft flights, pay in accordance with section 4 shall accrue to enlisted members only for periods of eight continuous days or more in duration at places designated, including the dates of arrival at, and the dates of departure from, those places.
"SEC. 6. Enlisted members shall not be entitled to additional pay under this order for duty which, under the provisions of supplementary regulations prescribed hereunder, does not constitute either sea duty or duty described in sections 4 and 5 hereof.
"SEC. 7. No enlisted member shall be entitled under this order to receive both sea-duty pay and pay for duty described in sections 4 and 5 hereof for the same period of time; nor sea-duty pay and credit for basic allowance for subsistence for the same period of time except periods during which messing facilities are temporarily out of operation to permit alterations or repairs and periods during which the member is on leave beyond the contiguous 48 States and the District of Columbia."
SEC. 3. Executive Order No. 10204 of January 15, 1951, is amended by adding the following new section:
"8. Unless the Secretary concerned, or his designee, determines that military operational conditions require otherwise, a commissioned officer without dependents who is in a pay grade above pay grade O-3 and who is assigned to quarters of the United States or a housing facility under the jurisdiction of a uniformed service, appropriate to his grade or rank and adequate for himself, may elect not to occupy those quarters and instead to receive the basic allowance for quarters prescribed for his pay grade by section 403 of title 37 of the United States Code."
SEC. 4. The amendments made by this order shall be effective as of October 1, 1963.
