    In uniform, we must be at attention.
    In civvies, just face the flag, remove the hat, and be quiet/respectful.

    And don't scold those who don't do the above. It is their constitutional right,...

    No disrespect to the sources you think are better researched, but they have the exact same problems you impute to this site.

    I guess this slippery slope leads to venues asking you to listen to the anthem on your cerebral implant. Then everyone will have to get very introspective to face the flag! :)

    I suspect complete cross-pollination, sharing resources. I have to believe they've vetted their info through all available resources.

    Active duty in uniform MUST salute, off-duty active and any retired MAY salute. I prefer parade rest. Hand over the heart (for me) seems too . . . rote. Sam's gesture was pure and genuine.

    Not touching that with a 10-foot flagpole!
    Some people are fixated on rote patriotic responses.
    Sam gets it or he wouldn't be in the Reserve.

    That's just a little too much stick and rudder, as we used to say in Naval Aviation. Removing one's hat and being respectful is all that's required in 2019.

    That's the bottom line. He is not a 'normal' reservist, so I'm sure he's got a very 'flexible' (wink, wink) service schedule. He owes the USAR 38 days a year, and it may all come when the season is...

    There are historical USA lists? I've seen that there are World lists (albeit unavailable for purchase), but not USA ones. Who might have them (I've got extra grandkids available for trade)?

    I understand his point, but . . . of course it's still just a shoe. There's an ergonomic limit to how much 'platform' a shoe can have before it's counter-productive. 37mm is an inch and a half, which...
