Veteran's Can Now Officially Hand Salute at National Anthem
To all fellow Vets,
Veterans in civilian clothes along with active duty personnel out of uniform are now authorized to render a military hand salute at an event whereat the National Anthem is played. By some quirk, Veteran's have always been authorized to render a hand salute at the raising and lowering of the flag but until 30 Oct this year, not at the playing of the National Anthem.
I encourage all of my fellow cruisemates who are vets to signify their status along with their support for active duty personnel, by a military hand salute at the next appropriate opportunity.
