Section 1. A special military reservation commission is hereby established, consisting of the adjutant general as chairman and of the air guard commander, Massachusetts national guard, and the state quartermaster as associate commissioners, said commission to be hereinafter referred to as the commission. Neither the adjutant general nor the state quartermaster shall receive any additional compensation on account of their membership in said commission. Said air guard commander shall receive one day's pay of grade for each day upon which he actually sits, or performs duties incumbent upon him, as a member of the commission, but in no event more than $250 in any one year. In case said air guard commander is relieved from duty in the national guard by reason of being in the military service of the United States of America under call or order of the president of said United States or in case said air guard commander, while not in said military service, is unable to perform his duties as such associate commissioner by reason of absence from the commonwealth, the governor as commander-in-chief may appoint some other general officer of the land forces of the commonwealth to act during the period of such service or absence, as such associate commissioner in lieu of said air guard commander.
