Hand Salute, Ready Two!

Here is a great NYT op-ed on the tradition of presidential salutes.  Reading it brought back memories of the harsh consequences of rendering an improper salute during my USCG basic training in Cape May during the long hot summer of 1978.  As such, I too find myself cringing at the sign of a sloppy presidential salute (Reagan's were the worse). 

As the writer notes, the salute rendered by Obama in this picture is flawless.
