Veterans Hand Salute Wearing Civilian Clothing
Here is an update for the American Veterans. We want to share the latest news pertaining to flag etiquette for the United States. In 2009 President Bush signed into law, as part of the Nation Defense Act of 2009, a new provision for veterans. It states, that veterans out of military uniform may now do the hand salute in respect to all observances of our flag. The hand salute may be used during the pledge of allegiance, singing of the national anthem, colors passing in review, as well as when colors are being posted. If you are wearing a hat, it should be placed to your left shoulder so that your hand will then be over your heart. Your service to your country will be duly noted. You are not only invited to participate in this manner, but hopefully you will show way for others.

We know that year in and year out, the 99% of Americans are protected by the 1% of our population that makes up our military services.
