Lt. Colonel, Army Finance and Accounting Center, requested a decision concerning retirement pay of two permanently disability-retired Army sergeants. Periods of time while on the temporary disability-retired list may be added to compute the basic pay of the member on active duty, but may not be used in recomputing retirement pay.
