Says the trailer trash that demands everyone stand at attention during
The Official Song.
The composition consisting of the words and music known as the
Star-Spangled Banner is the national anthem.
(b)Conduct During Playing.During a rendition of the national anthem
(1) when the flag is displayed
(A) individuals in uniform should give the military salute at the first
note of the anthem and maintain that position until the last note;
(B) members of the Armed Forces and veterans who are present but not in
uniform may render the military salute in the manner provided for
individuals in uniform; and
(C) all other persons present should face the flag and stand at
attention with their right hand over the heart, and men not in uniform,
if applicable, should remove their headdress with their right hand and
hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart; and
