Schneider: New law makes some changes to saluting flag

Do you know what to do when the US flag is raised? Have you noticed people out of uniform saluting the flag?


In January a new law was enacted that made some changes with respect to saluting the flag of the United States.


Section 594 of the National Defense Authorization Act, which was signed into law as Public Law 110-181 on Jan. 28, allows veterans out of uniform to salute the flag.


Section 9 of Title 4, United States Code, was amended by striking "all persons present" and all that follows through the end of the section, and inserted the following: "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 their heart, or if applicable, remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart. Citizens of other countries who are present should stand at attention. All such conduct toward the flag in a moving column should be rendered at the moment the flag passes."


Happy Independence Day!
