A decision was requested as to the propriety of making payment in favor of Lt. Col. Albert S. Babinec, USAF, representing additional retired pay. The officer may not have retired pay adjusted and increased to reflect higher pay rates effective at a later date. The amending retirement orders issued over four and one-half years after the accomplished mandatory retirement are without force or effect.
