How to display the Flag

Retirees and Vets Allowed to Salute Flag

Military.com sent this report

Week of November 16, 2009

Traditionally, members of the veterans service organizations render the hand-salute during the national anthem and at events involving the national flag while wearing their organization's official head-gear.

The National Defense Authorization Act of 2008 contained an amendment to allow un-uniformed servicemembers, 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 by veterans and out-of-uniform military personnel.

This was included in the Defense Authorization Act of 2009, which Former President Bush signed on Oct. 14, 2008.
