Veterans salute

A grateful Congress has extended a special privilege to all 20 million American veterans: the right to render the military salute at the flag and national anthem ceremony of every graduation, football and basketball games and other public events.

From this day forward, every veteran must stand tall and render your military salute as you did when you wore your nation’s uniform. Do it for all of those vets who are no longer with us, do it for all serving our nation today — our future vets.

The sight of saluting vets will enrich our national flag traditions for generations to come.
