Saluting





The military salute is universal. It is at foundation but a courteous
recognition between two individuals of their common fellowship in the
same honorable profession, the profession of arms. Regulations require
that it be rendered by both the senior and the junior, as bare courtesy
requires between gentlemen in civil life. It is the military equivalent
of the laymen's expressions Good Morning, or How do you do?
Therefore be punctilious about saluting; be proud of the manner in which
you execute your salute, and make it indicative of discipline and good
breeding. Always look at the officer you are saluting. The junior
salutes first. It is very unmilitary to salute with the left hand in a
pocket, or with a cigarette, cigar, or pipe in the mouth. Observe the
following general rules:

1. Never salute an officer when you are in ranks.

2. Indoors (in your tent) unarmed, do not salute but stand at
attention, uncovered, on the entrance of an officer. If he speaks
to you, then salute.

3. Indoors, armed, render the prescribed salute, i.e., the rifle
salute at order arms or at trail.

4. Outdoors, armed, render the prescribed salute, i.e., the rifle
salute at right shoulder arms.

5. Outdoors, unarmed, or armed with side arms, salute with the
right hand.
