Tennessee’s Representative Marsha Blackburn just made sure everyone knows that Trump is RIGHT about how Americans are supposed to behave when our National Anthem is played.
Monday, Rep. Blackburn filed a resolution, to remind Americans that Federal law addresses how we are to act during the playing of The Star-Spangled Banner.
Pursuant to Section 301(b) of title 36 of the U.S. code :
- Armed Services members in uniform should give the military salute at the first note of the song and maintain that position until the last note;
- Armed Forces members and veterans who are present but not in uniform may do the same; and,
- “All other persons present should face the flag and stand at attention with their right hand over the heart, and men not in uniform, if applicable, should remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart.” (emphasis added)
- When the flag is not displayed, all present should face toward the music and act in the same manner they would if the flag were displayed.Unfortunately, this is one of those laws with no teeth. So no one will go to jail for disobeying it. But the fact that it’s set out in Federal law says everything any American needs to know, don’t you think? And it proves Trump is in the right!Watch how Rep. Blackburn honors our flag and anthem:
