Customs & Courtesies
Customs & Courtesies and Respect for the Flag
DO NOT SALUTE INDOORS unless *reporting to receive an award. Of course, Veterans have the right to render a hand salute to the Flag whether in uniform or not.
Please be alert to who is around you and demonstrate the highest level of customs and courtesies at all times!
Take a look at the Flag Code, specifically §9, “Conduct during hoisting, lowering or passing of flag.
This information is echoed in our own CAPP 151, Respect on Display.
Please make note of the differences for conduct while indoors vs outdoors.
