                Executive Order 12908 of April 22, 1994

 
Order of Succession of Officers To Act as 
                Secretary of the Army

                By the authority vested in me as President by the 
                Constitution and the laws of the United States of 
                America, including section 3347 of title 5, United 
                States Code, it is hereby ordered as follows:

                Section 1. Succession To Act as the Secretary of the 
                Army.

                    (a) In the event of the death, permanent 
                disability, or resignation of the Secretary of the 
                Army, the incumbents holding the positions designated 
                below, in the order indicated, shall act for and 
                exercise the powers of the Secretary of the Army:

                (1) The Under Secretary of the Army.

                (2) The Assistant Secretaries and General Counsel of 
                the Army, in the order fixed by their length of service 
                as permanent appointees in such positions.

                (3) The Chief of Staff of the Army.

                    (b) In the event of the absence or temporary 
                disability of the Secretary of the Army, the incumbents 
                holding the Department of the Army positions designated 
                in paragraph (a) of this section, in the order 
                indicated, shall act for and exercise the powers of the 
                Secretary of the Army.

                (1) The designation of an Acting Secretary of the Army 
                under this subsection applies only for the duration of 
                the Secretary's absence or disability, and does not 
                affect the authority of the Secretary to resume the 
                powers of the Secretary's office.

                (2) When the Secretary of the Army is temporarily 
                absent from the position, the Secretary of the Army may 
                continue to exercise the powers and fulfill the duties 
                of his office during his absence, notwithstanding the 
                provisions of this order.

                    (c) Precedence among those officers designated in 
                paragraph (a) of this section who have the same date of 
                appointment shall be determined by the Secretary of the 
                Army at the time that such appointments are made.
                    (d) Notwithstanding paragraphs (a) and (b) of this 
                section, an officer shall not act for or exercise the 
                powers of the Secretary of the Army under this order if 
                that officer serves only in an acting capacity in the 
                position that would otherwise entitle him to do so.

                Sec. 2. Temporary Nature of Succession. Succession to 
                act for and exercise the powers of the Secretary of the 
                Army pursuant to this order shall be on a temporary or 
                interim basis and shall not have the effect of vacating 
                the statutory appointment held by the successor.

                    (Presidential Sig.)>


                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    April 22, 1994.
