26 would be attributable to this state under the provisions of this chapter.
27 (h) In the case of an individual who is on active duty as a full-time
28 officer, enlistee or draftee, with the armed forces of the United States,
29 which full-time duty is or will be continuous and uninterrupted for one hun-
