Says a lot about him.
Someone saluted me as I was driving out today, so I saluted back. And as I did, it occurred to me some of the things a man's salute says.
When his fingers and thumb are rigidly held with a knife-edge precision, the man likes to see himself as precise. When his shoulder is properly pulled back, and his elbow extends directly 90 degrees away from his body and level with the terra firma, he really is precise.
But when he straightens his spine, and stands tall with his chin level, he's giving true respect to the man he's saluting.
I don't know why, but that was very interesting to me.
