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;

[[Page 1399]]

(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

(b) Unit Operating Tempo and Personnel Tempo Recordkeeping.--
Subsection (c) of such section is amended to read as follows:
``(c) Recordkeeping.--(1) The Secretary of Defense shall--
``(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.

``(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.

[[Page 1401]]

``(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.''.

against attack or disruption. Some NATO countries will become
more dependent on foreign energy suppliers and in

for their energy needs. As a larger share of world consumption
is transported across the globe, energy supplies are
increasingly exposed to disruption.''.

``to deter and defend against any threat to the safety and
security of our populations'', the NATO alliance will, ``develop
the capacity to contribute to energy security, including
protection of critical energy infrastructure and transit areas
and lines, cooperation with partners, and consultations among
Allies on the basis of strategic assessments and contingency
planning.''.

Network of the Department of the Treasury wrote, ``The Central
Bank of Iran, which regulates Iranian banks, has assisted

these banks in 2011. In mid-2011, the CBI transferred several
billion dollars to designated banks, including Saderat, Mellat,

minimizing the direct involvement of large international banks
with both CBI and designated Iranian banks.''.

Laundering Concern.--The financial sector of Iran, including the Central

deceive responsible financial institutions and evade sanctions.

Institutions.--The President shall, pursuant to the International
