MILINET: Resps (4) "Hand Salute Vice Hand Over Heart For Vets--MG Vernon Lewis, USA (Ret.)

========================

This is just plain silly.

We know what to do.

In civies… hand over heart.

In uniform … salute.

In American Legion etc hat… salute is ok.

Otherwise… we have served our time and in spite of our voracious lobbying organizations… a little modesty is becoming.

Right?

------------------------------ANOTHER RESPONSE-------

Not so silly. By permitting vets to salute, it would recognize their contribution to this country--military service. The hand-salute is unique to the military and having vets use it would signal to those others in attendance that they stand with those who have served.

It is my understanding that retired Army officers return hand-salutes with a hand-salute when they are in mufti on military installations.

Semper Salute,

Anthony F. Milavic
Major USMC (Ret.)

-----------------------------ANOTHER RESPONSE-------

Anthony,
As I recall, Marines do not hand salute when uncovered. We just stood at
attention. I see no reason to change.

Semper fidelis,
Ned Dolan
Capt., USMC(Ret)

-----------------------------ANOTHER RESPONSE------

At two predominatly Marine functions over the past two weeks, we stood and placed our hands over hearts for the colors and the National Anthem.

Semper Salute,

Anthony F. Milavic
Major USMC (Ret.)
