Went to see DS over Presidents weekend. We went into DC for some sightseeing. Mid was a nervous wreck when we pulled into Arlington. Seems he wasn't sure while in uniform what he was to do while we watched the changing of the guard. We were walking down the hill he heard Taps --stopping immediately he searched frantically for a flag to salute and would not move a muscle until the bugle stopped. I asked him to explain and he said when in uniform and taps are played you are to stop and salute the flag. He did however tell me he wasn't sure what he was to do during the changing ceremony. Is there any way to make sure when they are out in public correct protocol in such situations. He was really worried he wasn't being militarily correct. Seems they give them instructions when the go on cruise etc like stop halfway up and salute the flag-ask permission to come aboard etc. Will admit lots of looks while touring which as all mids say you sometimes feel like a hamster. Great weekend but it did raise a lot of questions.
