Always great to see our Veterans continuing to respect our national anthem, flag, and country.

MILITARY SALUTE FOR THE FLAG DURING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM

Traditionally, members of the nation’s veteran’s service organizations have rendered the hand-salute during the national anthem and at events involving the national flag only while wearing their organization’s official head-gear.
The National Defense Authorization Act of 2008 contained an amendment to allow un-uniformed service members, military retirees, and veterans to render a hand salute during the hoisting, lowering, or passing of the U.S. flag.

A later amendment further authorized hand-salutes during the national anthem byveterans and out-of-uniform military personnel. This was included in the DefenseAuthorization Act of 2009, which President Bush signed on Oct. 14, 2008.

Here is the actual text from the law:
SEC. 595. MILITARY SALUTE FOR THE FLAG DURING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM BYMEMBERS OF THE ARMED FORCES NOT IN UNIFORM AND BY VETERANS.
