Statutory limits

Lt. Gen. James M. Rockwell is pinned with his third star at the Pentagon on 29 June 1984.

As with four-star officers, the U.S. Code explicitly limits the number of three-star officers that may be on active duty at any given time. The total number of active-duty general or flag officers is capped at 219 for the Army, 150 for the Navy, 171 for the Air Force, 64 for the Marine Corps, and 21 for the Space Force.[227] Statute also sets the total number of three-star officers allowed in these services,[228] which equates to about 23% of each service's total active-duty general or flag officer pool.[d] The number is set at 46 three-star Army generals,[228] 17 three-star Marine Corps generals,[228] 34 three-star Navy admirals,[228] 44 three-star Air Force generals,[228] seven three-star Space Force generals,[228] and five three-star Coast Guard admirals.[229]

Vice Adm. William E. Gortney, director of the Joint Staff, updates the media on Operation Odyssey Dawn from the Pentagon on 24 March 2011.

While a number of these positions are set by statute, most do not have the accompanying statutory three-star rank. By convention, however:

Lt. Gen. Stephen N. Whiting has his third star pinned on by his family at Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado, 21 October 2020.

The president may also designate positions of importance and responsibility to other agencies in the executive branch aside from the Coast Guard and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to be held by an officer with the rank of vice admiral, with corresponding pay and allowance.[229]

Exceptions

Exceptions exist that allow for the appointment of three-star officers beyond statutory limits. The secretary of defense can designate up to 68 three-star officers,[252] who do not count against any service's general or flag officer limit,[252] to serve in one of several joint positions.[253] For three-star officers, these include senior positions on the Joint Staff such as the director of the Joint Staff and deputy commanders of unified combatant commands.[254] Officers serving in certain intelligence positions are not counted against statutory limits, including the deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency,[255] associate director for military affairs of the Central Intelligence Agency,[255] and the advisor for military affairs to the director of National Intelligence.[253][255] The president can appoint additional three-star officers in any one service, in excess of that service's three-star limit, as long as they are offset by reducing an equivalent number of three-stars from other services.[228] Finally, all statutory limits may be waived at the president's discretion during time of war or national emergency.[256]

Appointment

Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn addresses guests after becoming director of the Defense Intelligence Agency on 24 July 2012.

Like with four-stars, three-star grade of ranks are temporary in nature; officers may only achieve three stars if they are appointed to positions that require or allow the officer to hold the rank.[257] Their rank expires with the expiration of their term of office, which is normally set by statute.[257] The president nominates three-star officers from any eligible officers holding one-star rank and above who also meet the other requirements for the position, based on the advice of their respective executive department secretary, service secretary, and if applicable the Joint Chiefs.[257] The nominee must be confirmed via majority by the Senate before the appointee can take office and thus assume the rank.[257][e]

While it is rare for nominations to face even token opposition in the Senate, nominations that do face opposition due to controversy surrounding the nominee in question are typically withdrawn.[259]

  • For example, the nomination of Major General Ryan F. Gonsalves to the rank of lieutenant general, and assignment as commanding general of U.S. Army Europe in 2017 was withdrawn,[260] after an investigation was launched into the general's inappropriate comment to a female congressional staffer.[261]
Rear Adm. Elizabeth A. Hight was not confirmed to be director of the Defense Information Systems Agency in 2008
  • Lieutenant General Mary A. Legere was widely considered a leading candidate to succeed Lieutenant General Michael T. Flynn as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014, but her name was removed from consideration,[268] following congressional backlash over her involvement in several controversial Army intelligence projects.[269]
  • Major General Raphael J. Hallada was withdrawn from consideration to become commanding general of Fifth Army in 1991,[270][271] in connection to his decision not to prosecute two soldiers responsible for an artillery accident at his command of Fort Sill.[272][273]
  • And Rear Admiral Elizabeth A. Hight's nomination to be director of the Defense Information Systems Agency in 2008 was withdrawn,[277] due to concerns about a possible conflict of interest with her husband, a retired Air Force general who was employed by a prominent defense contractor.[278]
Lt. Gen. Michael Dubie (right) poses with Coast Guard Rear Adm. Daniel Abel (left) in front of USCGC Elderberry on 27 October 2014.

Nominations that are not withdrawn are allowed to expire without action at the end of the legislative session, with said nominations being returned to the President.[259][279]

  • The nomination of Rear Admiral Thomas P. Ostebo to be the Coast Guard's deputy commandant for mission support in 2014 was returned to the president,[283][284] as it was procedurally delayed by a senator who opposed the closure of two Coast Guard facilities in response to sequestration cuts.[285]

Additionally, events that occur after Senate confirmation may delay or even prevent the nominee from assuming office, necessitating that another nominee be selected and considered by the Senate.

  • Vice Admiral Scott A. Stearney assumed command of U.S. Naval Forces Central Command, Fifth Fleet, and Combined Maritime Forces in May 2018.[290] His death in December 2018 resulted in the speedy confirmation[291] of Rear Admiral James J. Malloy in the same month for elevation to the rank of vice admiral as his replacement.[292]

Command elevation and reduction

Air Force Lt. Gen. Jack L. Rives became the first three-star judge advocate general in any service, following passage of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008
Lt. Gen. Thomas J. Plewes (center), following his promotion ceremony, stands with living former chiefs of the Army Reserve on 13 June 2001.

Any billet in the armed forces may be designated as a position of importance requiring the holder of the position to be of three-star or four-star rank.[257] One-star and two-star billets may be elevated to three-star or four-star level as appropriate, either by act of Congress, or within statutory limits by the services at their discretion. Congress may propose such elevations or reductions to the president and Department of Defense.[293]

An officer leading a command or office elevated to three-star rank can be promoted while in their present position, reassigned to another office of equal rank, or retire if another nominee is selected as their replacement.

  • For example, Major General Scott C. Black became judge advocate general of the Army in October 2005. With the elevation of the office to three-star in 2008, Black was nominated for promotion to lieutenant general,[294] and assumed the rank in December 2008.
  • Vice Admiral Henry H. Mauz Jr., commander of U.S. Seventh Fleet, was dual-hatted as commander of U.S. Naval Forces Central Command in August 1990.[295] The incumbent commander, Captain Robert Sutton, was not appointed to the rank of vice admiral and was thus reassigned as commander of the U.S. Naval Logistics Support Force under Mauz's command.[296]

A lower-level billet may be elevated to three-stars, in accordance with being designated as a position of importance, to highlight importance to the defense apparatus or achieve parity with equivalent commands in the same area of responsibility or service branch.

A four-star billet may also be reduced to three-stars, usually to compensate for another billet being elevated to four-star level and thus remain within statutory limits.

Tour length

Incoming surgeon general Vivek Murthy is pinned with his vice admiral's rank insignia by his sister Rashimi as Vice President Joe Biden looks on at his swearing-in ceremony on 22 April 2015.

The standard tour length for a three-star officer is three years, specifically a two-year term with a one-year extension. Unlike with four-star ranks, many three-star positions have stipulated term lengths in the U.S. Code:

  • Deputy commanders of unified combatant commands, as a joint duty assignment, serve for one to two years.
  • Inspectors general of the Army, Navy, and Air Force serve for a nominal four-year term.
  • Judge advocates general of the Army, Navy, and Air Force serve for a nominal four-year term.
  • Three-star chiefs of service reserve components serve for a nominal four-year term in office, but may serve for up to eight years if reappointed to serve for a second term. Typically, a reserve component chief serves for two to three years.
  • Three-star chiefs of Army branches,[m] (except the judge advocate general) serve for a nominal four-year term.[234]
  • Superintendents of the U.S. Military Academy, the U.S. Naval Academy, and the U.S. Air Force Academy serve for a nominal three-year term, though it is common for them to serve for four to five years.
  • The surgeon general of the United States serves for a nominal four-year term.[311]

All appointees serve at the pleasure of the president. Extensions of the standard tour length can be approved, within statutory limits, by their respective service secretaries, the secretary of defense, the president, and/or Congress but these are rare, as they block other officers from being promoted. Some statutory limits of tour length under the U.S. Code can be waived in times of national emergency or war.[312][313] Three-star grades may also be given by act of Congress but this is extremely rare.

Retirement

Gen. Mark A. Milley, Army chief of staff, presents Lt. Gen. Robert L. Caslen with a certificate authorizing his presentation of the Army Distinguished Service Medal at Caslen's relinquishment of command ceremony on 22 June 2018.
Lt. Gen. Ronald C. Marcotte (right), is presented his formal retirement certificate by Gen. John W. Handy (left), during his retirement ceremony held at Heritage Park on 8 March 2002.

Besides voluntary retirement, statute sets a number of mandates for retirement. A three-star officer may serve for a maximum of 38 years of commissioned service unless reappointed to rank to serve longer or appointed to a higher rank.[316] Three-star officers on reserve active duty must retire after five years in grade or 30 days after completion of 38 years of commissioned service, whichever is later, unless reappointed to rank to serve longer.[317] Three-star reserve officers of the Army and Air Force can have their retirements deferred by their service secretary until the officer's 66th birthday,[318] which the secretary of defense may do for all active-duty officers,[319] and the president can defer it until the officer's 68th birthday.[319] Otherwise all general and flag officers must retire the month after their 64th birthday.[319] Officers that served several years in the enlisted ranks prior to receiving their commission typically don't make it to the 38 years in commission mark, because they are still subject to the age restrictions for retirement.

Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Vern Clark (left), delivers remarks at the retirement ceremony of Vice Adm. Patricia Tracey (center), as she listens in on 2 September 2004.

By statute, any three-star officer assigned as superintendent of the United States Military Academy,[320] superintendent of the United States Naval Academy,[321] and superintendent of the United States Air Force Academy[322] must retire upon completion of their assignment,[323][321][324] unless a waiver is granted by the secretary of defense.[325][326][327] The secretary of defense must also notify the House and Senate Armed Services committees and include a written notification of intent from the president to nominate the officer for reassignment.[325][326][327] If a waiver is granted, the subsequent nomination and appointment of such officer having served as superintendent of the Academy to a further assignment in lieu of retirement shall be subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.[325][326][327]

  • Lieutenant General Sidney Bryan Berry is the last superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy not subject to the mandates for retirement, serving as commanding general of V Corps from 1977 to 1980 after his tenure as superintendent from 1974 to 1976.[328] His successor, General Andrew J. Goodpaster is the latest retired officer recalled to serve as superintendent, serving from 1977 to 1981.
  • Rear Admiral Thomas C. Lynch is the last superintendent of the U.S. Naval Academy not subject to the mandates for retirement, serving as director of the Navy staff from 1994 to 1995 after his tenure as superintendent from 1991 to 1994. His successor, Admiral Charles R. Larson is the last four-star admiral to serve as superintendent, from 1994 to 1998.[329]
  • Major General Robert E. Kelley is the last superintendent of the U.S. Air Force Academy not subject to the mandates for retirement, serving as the vice commander of Tactical Air Command from 1983 to 1986 after his tenure as superintendent from 1981 to 1983.
Outgoing Coast Guard vice commandant, Vice Adm. John P. Currier is thanked by Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson at his retirement ceremony on 20 May 2014.

Senior officers typically retire well in advance of the statutory age and service limits, so as not to impede the upward career mobility of their juniors. The higher number of available three-star slots overall (ranging from around 100 to 200) means that lateral promotion is more likely for three-star officers before they either retire or are appointed to a higher rank.[n] An officer who vacates a position bearing that rank has no more than 60 days to be appointed or reappointed to a position of equal or greater importance, including positions of four-star rank, before involuntary retirement.[257]

  • For example, Lieutenant General H. Steven Blum was appointed as deputy commander of U.S. Northern Command in 2009. The incumbent deputy commander, Lieutenant General William G. Webster Jr., was appointed as commanding general of U.S. Army Central, whose incumbent commanding general, Lieutenant General James J. Lovelace Jr., received no further appointment and retired at the age of 60, with 39 years of service and six years in rank.
  • Rear Admiral Ronald A. Route was promoted to vice admiral and appointed as naval inspector general in 2004. The incumbent inspector general, Vice Admiral Albert T. Church, was appointed as director of the Navy staff, whose incumbent director, Vice Admiral Patricia A. Tracey, received no further appointment and retired at the age of 52, with 34 years of service and six years in rank.
  • Major General William H. Etter was promoted to lieutenant general and appointed as commander of First Air Force in 2013. The incumbent commander, Lieutenant General Stanley E. Clarke III, was appointed as director of the Air National Guard, whose incumbent director, Lieutenant General Harry M. Wyatt III, received no further appointment and retired at the age of 63, with 42 years of service and four years in rank.
  • Rear Admiral Steven D. Poulin was promoted to vice admiral and appointed as commander of the Coast Guard Atlantic Area in 2020. The incumbent commander, Vice Admiral Scott A. Buschman, was appointed as deputy commandant for operations; the incumbent deputy commandant, Vice Admiral Daniel B. Abel, received no further appointment and retired at the age of 59, with 37 years of service and two years in rank.

A three-star officer may also be reduced to their permanent rank, and equivalent pay grade, in circumstances where reappointment to three-star rank is delayed. Historically, officers leaving three-star or four-star positions were allowed to revert to their permanent two-star ranks to mark time in lesser jobs until statutory retirement, but now such officers are expected to retire immediately to avoid obstructing the promotion flow.

  • For example, Lieutenant General Timothy J. Kadavy reverted to his permanent grade of major general while awaiting confirmation as vice chief of the National Guard Bureau in 2019,[330] as he had not been assigned to another three-star position within 60 days of his relief as director of the Army National Guard.[o] After his nomination was returned to the president without action,[331] he was certified to retire as a lieutenant general in 2020.[332]
  • Vice Admiral John Poindexter reverted to his permanent grade of rear admiral in 1986, as he was not appointed by the Senate to another three-star post within 90 days after resigning as national security advisor to the president due to controversy surrounding the Iran-Contra affair,[333] and was reassigned to the Navy staff until retirement in 1987.[334] His request to retire as a vice admiral was deferred by the secretary of the Navy due to expected congressional opposition.[335][334]
Lt. Gen. Lawson W. Magruder III accepts a shell casing from a U.S. Army military police honor guard officer at his retirement ceremony, 27 February 2003.

To retire at three-star rank, or pay grade of rank, an officer must accumulate at least three years of satisfactory active-duty service in that rank, as determined by the secretary of defense.[336] The president and Congress must also receive certification by either the under secretary of defense for personnel and readiness, the deputy under secretary of defense for personnel and readiness, or the secretary of defense that the retiree served satisfactorily in rank.[336] The secretary of defense may reduce this requirement to two years, but only if the officer is not being investigated for misconduct.[337] The president may also reduce these requirements even further, or waive the requirements altogether, if he so chooses.[336][337] Three-star officers who do not meet the service-in-rank requirement will retire at the last permanent rank satisfactorily held for six months.[336] The retiree may also be subject to congressional approval by the Senate before the retiree can retire in grade. It is extraordinarily rare for a three-star or four-star officer not to be certified to retire in grade or for the Senate to seek final approval.

  • Lieutenant General Craig A. Franklin retired on 1 April 2014,[339] with two years and two days in grade, in response to charges of partiality in overseeing cases of sexual assault in Third Air Force.[340] Despite not being penalized for misconduct, his retirement before accumulating statutory time in grade resulted in his reduction to major general on the retired list.[341]
  • Lieutenant General Ronald F. Lewis was relieved as senior military assistant to the secretary of defense on 12 November 2015, with approximately four months in grade.[342] He subsequently reverted to his permanent grade of major general[p] pending an investigation by the Department of Defense inspector general for misconduct.[343][344] His certification of satisfactory service as a major general was revoked,[345] thus reducing his retirement grade to brigadier general.[346]
Gen. Lew Allen, Air Force chief of staff, presents the Defense Distinguished Service Medal to Lt. Gen. Benjamin N. Bellis during his retirement ceremony on 17 July 1981.

Officers who are under investigation for misconduct typically are not allowed to retire until the investigation completes, so that the secretary of defense can decide whether to certify that their performance was satisfactory enough to retire in their highest grade.[336]

  • For example, Lieutenant General Lee K. Levy II relinquished his three-star command in 2018,[347] but remained on active duty for over a year after his retirement ceremony in his permanent grade of major general[q] pending an investigation by the Air Force inspector general,[348] before being allowed to retire as a major general.[349][350]

Furthermore, all retired officers may still be subjected to the Uniform Code of Military Justice and disciplinary action, including reduction in retirement grade, by the secretary of defense or the president if they are deemed to have served unsatisfactorily in grade, after their retirement.[354]

  • Lieutenant General Philip R. Kensinger Jr., who retired from the Army as a lieutenant general, faced court martial and demotion nearly two years after his retirement date of 1 February 2006,[355][356] for making false statements regarding the Pat Tillman friendly fire incident.[357] He was allowed to retain his three-star rank and accompanying pay grade after the secretary of the Army opted not to pursue the heavier punishment, instead issuing Kensinger an official reprimand and censure.[358]

Officers holding a temporary three-star or four-star rank typically step down from their posts up to 60 days in advance of their official retirement dates. Officers retire on the first day of the month, so once a retirement month has been selected, the relief and retirement ceremonies are scheduled by counting backwards from that date by the number of days of accumulated leave remaining to the retiring officer. During this period, termed transition leave or terminal leave, the officer is considered to be awaiting retirement but still on active duty.

  • For example, Lieutenant General Donald C. Wurster was relieved as commander of Air Force Special Operations Command on 24 June 2011,[359] and held his retirement ceremony the same day, but remained on active duty until his official retirement date on 1 August 2011.

A statutory limit can be waived by the president with the consent of Congress if it serves national interest. However, this is extremely rare. Only two four-star officers have been granted such a waiver in American history: General Lewis B. Hershey, who served as director of the Selective Service System from 1941 to 1970, and Admiral Hyman G. Rickover, who served as director of Naval Reactors from 1949 to 1982.
