I know what AR means son. I spent many beautiful years in that fine organization, an organization that was established 1 year prior to this great nation being formed. If anyone has the right to tell you how it should be done then it would be them as far as I am concerned.

As I have said before I don't care how people do it because they mean well.

Remember this though, when "Martial Law" is implemented who carries out the order and granted control? It might be nice to understand how those people do business.

As far as haircut and mustache regulations are concerned I don't expect people to wear them as directed in Army Regulation 670-1, but people would look a hell of a lot more clean cut if they did.

Having said that people don't have to conform to the way that Military Chorus' sing the National Anthem, but it would sound a lot more clean cut if they did.

And here is the correct way U.S. citizens should observe the National Anthem (As SS mentioned earlier, I hate that damn "OOOHHH" from fans too).

TITLE 36–PATRIOTIC AND NATIONAL OBSERVANCES, CEREMONIES, AND ORGANIZATIONS
    • SUBTITLE I–PATRIOTIC AND NATIONAL OBSERVANCES AND CEREMONIES
      • PART A–OBSERVANCES AND CEREMONIES
        • CHAPTER 3–NATIONAL ANTHEM, MOTTO, FLORAL EMBLEM, AND MARCH
          • Section 301–National Anthem
Sec. 301. National anthem
(a) Designation.–The composition consisting of the words and music
known as the Star-Spangled Banner is the national anthem.
(b) Conduct During Playing.–During a rendition of the national
anthem–
(1) when the flag is displayed–
(A) all present except those in uniform should stand at
attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart;
(B) men not in uniform should remove their headdress with
their right hand and hold the headdress at the left shoulder,
the hand being over the heart; and
(C) individuals in uniform should give the military salute
at the first note of the anthem and maintain that position until
the last note; and
(2) 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.
Good post this AM also, agree 100%.

Actually that's an Army term as well. Some of our old timers may remember the old Western series "The Rifleman". A disgraced officer is forced to do an about face to the unit drummer and drummed out of the service.

All thats great but I'm happy when all people just stop what they are doing and shut the F*&^ up while the NA is played. I don't care if they remove their hat, face the music, etc... because its their choice but they can show courtesy to others.

While attending a High School football game a couple of years ago, I became completely enraged and swore to never spend a minute there again. The home team coach went for the "shock and awe" factor when he had his team of 14-18 year olds take the field during the National Anthem. Their arche rival soundly beat the crap out of them that night to my delight. Yet there was no public outcry, not a peep in the local paper.

Re: The Correct Singing Of The National Anthem

I read some of the post. All I know is when I hear the National Anthem I not waiting or trying to pinpiont out a mistake. The song just moves me everytime I hear it. It is the first song I every learned word for word, for my 5th grade graduation ceremony. So I enjoyed it and every other ones.

The one complaint I do have is when people speak through it. It really angers me I Feel Like Slapping Them Once Its Over.

No need to put all the bullshit on it and all the crazy vocal runs. Just sing it nice and normal.

Some of the best renditions I have heard were from members of the military. They sing it properly and there ARE talented singers outside of MTV.

Agreed on that!

I understand what people here are talking about it being a "rendition" of the song, but you have to admit that some of these crazy runs that some of these singers like to invoke are a little too over the top!

Incidentally, I remember hearing C.A. sing the National Anthem for the NBA Finals and she did a heck of a job. Didn't seem to be as over the top with the runs. I think probably what happened was that she got nervous and tried to over correct.
