That should have all the info you desire.

Personally, when in uniform i go by the 6 paces from a flag ill salute; all except the little hand held ones.

well tonight i went to the flag retirement ceremony i did some checking and it was a civilian and retired military held event so i went in civilians. i carried my son and it was a beautiful thing very professional and respectful. the best thing was i was invited to help. my son got to see a side of the military that most people do not get to see several grown men and their love for the country and flag
