There is one other time when military personnel may be "covered" indoors:
during official formations, such as those at open and close of business. We
have quite a few of those "indoor assemblies" at my USAR unit in Milwaukee;
seems the "pretty white stuff" and accompanying temps distracts from the
commander's messages...and, more deadly, from the 1SGT's!!!!
Seems the opening and closing "formations", or ceremonies, for troop
meetings would fall under the same, uh, roof, so to speak. Our scouts are
hatless during the ceremonies; but I wouldn't criticize a troop which chose
to remain covered during the actual flag presentation and retreat.
