SALUTES

Your Salute
  • The way you salute is important because it says a
    lot about you. If you salute proudly and
    smartly, it shows you have pride in yourself,
    your unit, and your school.
  • A sloppy salute, on the other hand, shows you
    lack confidence, self-discipline, and that you
    dont understand the meaning of the salute.
