3.     Saluting: While we don't salute as one Auxiliarists to another it is proper to return a salute if saluted by a member of the Military or ROTC/JROTC in Uniform   
        a.     It is proper to initiate a salute as a USCG Auxiliary member to an equal rank or higher officer of the United States Military (you should learn to recognize the symbols of rank)
                Remember only officers are saluted. (exception being someone awarded the MEDAL of HONOR of ANY RANK)
        b.     If on a Military installation at 0800 hours and you hear the "CALL TO COLORS" by Bugle/Pipe or on loudspeakers it means the National Ensign (American Flag) is being raised. If you are in your
                car you should stop, staying inside and do not proceed until it finishes. If outside in uniform face the flag if visible or where you think it might be and offer a hand salute. 
                The same applies at sunset at the Retreat of the Flag.
                The following link is an excellent reference to this information:   
                *Prior Military Veterans & Retirees if covered (hat on) and in civilian clothing may offer a hand salute based on a 2011 decision.

                This is only a partial list and it may be added to or modified. If you feel something is incorrect or should be modified please advise via e-mail to the FC/VFC/FSO-FN
