When Reveille concludes, come to attention and salute at the first note of “To the Colors,” hold salute until the last note. Civilian and military personnel not in uniform should place right hand over heart at the first note of “To the Colors” and keep it there until the last note. Males should remove headgear with right hand and hold it at the left shoulder with right hand over heart. Saluting is optional for service members and veterans not in uniform. If in a moving vehicle, pull to the side of the road and stop. All vehicle occupants should sit quietly until the last note of music.

At the first note of Retreat, all military personnel in uniform will immediately face the flag and stand at parade rest (if flag is not in view, face the source of music).
