A US veteran does not have to be in uniform to salute the colors. I noticed a TV show where a home was remodeled to accommodate a handicapped veteran. One of the guys in the crowd that helped with the remodel was saluting the flag in the front yard. I got curious and that is when I found the supplied link. I have seen a couple saluting the flag indoors but I don't think that is proper protocol.
"The most recent change, authorizing hand-salutes during the national anthem by veterans and out-of-uniform military personnel, was sponsored by Sen. Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma, an Army veteran. It was included in the Defense Authorization Act of 2009, which President Bush signed on Oct. 14." Thanks, George.
