National Anthem Etiquette

During the rendition of the national anthem when the flag is displayed, all present except those in uniform shall stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Men not in uniform should remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart. Persons in uniform should render the military salute at the first note of the anthem and retain this position until the last note. 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. When the flag is not displayed, those present should face toward the music and act in the same manner they would if the flag were displayed there.

Definition of a Veteran

A veteran is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America,” for an account of “up to and including my life.” –That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.

~ Author Unknown

Today, it is our privilege to say “thank you” to all of America’s veterans, to let them know that we appreciate them for their service and honor them for their sacrifices. The price of freedom is high. We cannot afford to forget those willing to pay it. We celebrate America’s veterans for keeping this nation “the land of the free and the home of the brave.”
