Requests the President to advance: (1) the late Rear Admiral Husband E. Kimmel to the grade of admiral on the retired list of the Navy; and (2) the late Major General Walter C. Short to the grade of lieutenant general on the retired list of the Army.

Prohibits any change in compensation or benefits based on the military service of such officers as a result of such advancements.
