    Some months ago, KYH and I had a discussion of how to salute the flag. I said I used hand-over-the heart; turns out that in 2008, the Flag Code was amended to permit veterans, not in uniform and whether or not wearing a hat ("covered") to render the military hand salute at appropriate times:

    I used this authorization at our recent Fourth of July parade and enjoyed the hell out of it!  /img/vbsmilies/smilies/biggrin.gif
