Respect for the United States Flag Rendered by Veterans

I have seen a number of different references to the proper flag protocol for veterans.  They all seemed to be missing some vital piece of information, so I have collated the following from http://uscode.house.gov/search/criteria.shtml.  You can verify these by entering the appropriate Title Number and Section Number listed below in the search windows for those entries found at this link. 

 

In the 2008 version of the National Defense Authorization Act, Congress changed Title 4 U.S Code, Sec. 9, which addresses protocol for conduct during hoisting, lowering, or passing of the flag (changes in red).  "During the ceremony of hoisting or lowering the flag or when the flag is passing in a parade or in review, all persons present in uniform should render the military salute.  Members of the Armed Forces and veterans who are present but not in uniform may render the military salute.  All other persons present should face the flag and stand at attention with their right hand over the heart, or if applicable, remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart. ... All such conduct toward the flag in a moving column should be rendered the moment the flag passes."

 

 

The Title 36 U.S. Code, Sec. 301 which addresses patriotic and national observances, ceremonies, and organizations, covers the protocol during rendering of the national anthem.
"(1) when the flag is displayed -
     (A) individuals in uniform should give the military salute at the first note of the anthem and maintain that position until the last note;
     (B) members of the Armed Forces and veterans who are present but not in uniform may render the military salute in the manner provided for individuals in uniform; and

     (C) all other persons present should face the flag and stand at attention with their right hand over the heart, and men not in uniform, if applicable, should remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart; and

 

(2) when the flag is not displayed, all present should face toward the music and act in the same manner they would if the flag were displayed."

 

Military Retirement (2022 06 17)

When I completed my 4 years of active duty obligation in 1974, I was determined to end my military career. My oldest brother, David, at the time a COL in the Army Reserve, counseled me to capitalize on my retirement points and stay in the Army Reserves. That was the best fiscal advice I have ever received. My retirement at age 60 ushered in a solid monthly retirement check and the best medical insurance program I can imagine.

 

With that in mind, here are three photos. The one on the left is me in my Norwich Old Guard hat. Old Guard are Norwich grads who graduated 50 years ago or more. When this was posted, I had been a member of the Old Guard for 57 years. The one in the middle is my Army Retired pin which is on the right of my visor and the one on the right is my Department of Veterans Affairs, Million Veterans Program, of which I am a member. It is on the left of my visor.

 

When I am traveling, I often go up to uniformed military personnel in the airport and thank them for their service and encourage them to stay in until retirement and explain that the MVP is intended to make sure they have individualized medicine based upon detailed understanding of how their unique DNA determines the details of their health care. Then I ask them if they know about Norwich. Many of them do.

 

Once a professor, always a professor! 😊
