This raises an interesting question that comes up at 4th of July parades,
etc, where almost all units have a flag. I always though there was a "lead"
unit in any parade, they had THE flag, you stood up for IT and then could sit
down and enjoy all the rest of the parade without the yo-yo effect. There is
always some Legion guy who hassles all the sitters to death.
Ask yourself ... if you are driving and hear the National Anthem at the
beginning of the radio coverage of a ball game, do you pull over and salute ?
Heck no. Safety for one thing, its also called an incidental playing.
