    Even tho my right fingers are somewhat paralyzed I would be honored to be able to render a hand salute and observe other veterans also,we took an oath when we enlisted and I don't ever remember taking it back

    I had heard of this law and seen it written up back in Early November. As a result, I gave my first salute to the colors as they were presented at a Veterans day ceremony in our town when the colors were presented.

    I had several other Vets ask me why I did this and when I told them about the new ruling, they were very pleased that they could once again salute the flag!

    It felt damn good to once again be able to show respect for the flag in the best way one who served his country with honor can.

    Cool. Very cool.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    You know what's wrong with this country?
    The fact that we have to have a law to do this...

    Like some others, I don't remember taking back the oath when I left the military.

    Our flag certainly deserves that respect...

    To think there is a LAW that has to be in place to ALLOW anyone to salute the country, the flag, or anyone who is due honor and respect.

    Kudos for overcoming the putzes to "allow" such a thing.

    I have to say I had goose bumps just reading the VA release.

    It's about time.

    So my question is .. what if you are wearing a ball cap? Do you remove the cap and then salute? or can you salute with the cap on? Which way would be proper for a veteran? Normally, during the National Anthem, you would remove your cap/hat out of respect and place it or your hand over your heart.

    I never took back my oath of enlistment either.

    Maybe I'm a putz. I'm not against it, but you won't see me doing it, either. I'll continue to put my hand over my heart since I'm just another American--nobody special.

    Actually Veterans are more then "just another American", We are Veterans of the Military of the The United States Of America. Not all citizens can say that, and many of them opted out and ran away from their obligation. I like that by saluting it makes us stand out from the ordinary citizens. I was proud to serve in the Military,Even when I came back to the USA and was treated as trash in 1969. I find it an honor to salute the Flag. We are the best country in the world and allways will be. The Flag represents the country and I feel that any one who disrespects the flag is a traitor to our country.
