                such service shall not include service in a regular 
                component of the armed forces, including the Coast 
                Guard, but (A) service in a reserve component that is 
                concurrent, in whole or in part, with service in a 
                regular component of the armed forces shall be included 
                in computing the required 10 years of reserve service, 
                and (B) any period of time during which reserve service 
                is interrupted by service in a regular component of the 
                armed forces shall be excluded in computing, and shall 
                not be considered a break in, the said period of 12 
                consecutive years, and (3) such service shall not 
                include service for which the Naval Reserve Medal or

                awarded.
                       b. On or after August 1, 1990, the member was

                awarded with the appropriate appurtenance that denotes
