or who shall be a member of the officers' reserve corps, the enlisted reserve corps, the Naval
Reserve, the Marine Corps reserve, or any other reserve component of the military or naval forces
of the United States now or hereafter organized or constituted under federal law, shall be entitled
to leave of absence from the public office or employment without loss of pay, seniority status,
efficiency rating, vacation, sick leave, or other benefits for all the time when engaged with such

herein limited for such leave, or (2) is prevented from so returning by physical or mental disability
or other cause not due to the officer's or employee's own fault, or (3) is required by proper authority
to continue in such military or naval service beyond the time herein limited for such leave.
