When you see people in civilian clothing saluting at Memorial Day events this weekend, it's likely they'll be American veterans. As civilians stand and hold their hands over their hearts, Congress has extended the special privilege to render the military salute at flag ceremonies to all 21 million men and women who have worn our nation's uniforms in war and peace.
America loves and respects all of those who left their homes and lived the military life for however long or short a time. Veterans should join the invited 100 members of Congress who are also veterans in rendering a proud, military salute as the flags pass this weekend.
