Dr, Thomas E. Riebesell
I was in agony for several days with lower back pain. Like most human beings, I delayed contacting my medical professional, in this case, Dr, Thomas E. Riebesell. Finally, being bent over for a couple of days, I called his office, 201 845 8722, and was chagrined to know that his Saturday office hours were well over, they were from 8:30 to 9:30AM. Nevertheless I left a message on his answering machine. To my amazement, I received a callback from Dr. Tom about an hour later.

An unexpected side effect of this year's recession-ridden holiday season is that people have discovered that indeed it is more fun to make social connections than to buy new stuff. Americans have been on a consumer high for so long that we have lost touch with many of the simple (and free) pleasures in life.

The simple answer to your question is “yes.” to saluting the flag.
With the passage of the February 2008 Defense Authorization Act, specifically S.1877 which amended Title 4, U.S. Code, veterans may now salute the U.S. Flag during the ceremony of hoisting or lowering the flag or when the flag is passing in a parade or in review. In September 2008, Congress passed and the President signed the 2009 Defense Authorization Act which included sec. 595 and added the playing of the National Anthem to the occasions for a military hand salute by veterans. Later legislation is planned to add the Pledge of Allegiance. The VFW encourages all veterans to render a hand salute under these circumstances, regardless of their headgear or lack of headgear.
