Letter: Military hand salute is OK at all events

saluteTo All American veterans: A grateful Congress has extended a special privilege to you and all 20 million American veterans: the right to render your military hand salute at the flag and national-anthem ceremony of every graduation/football/basketball/public event.

Beginning Monday, Memorial Day, 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; and for our future vets. Your salute is an act of patriotism that will enrich our national flag traditions for generations to come.

ROBERT E. GRIFFITH, ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, ILL.; USNR (retired commander)
