    CHARLESTON, W.Va. - After a photo surfaced of West Virginia correction officer trainees giving what appears to be the Nazi salute, state officials quickly suspended some employees and the governor ordered the firing of those involved. The image, showing more than two dozen trainees with their arms raised and faces blurred, was released Thursday by the West Virginia Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety. A line of text reading “Hail Byrd” tops the picture, which an agency spokesman said was a reference to the trainees’ instructor. Before the photo was made public, the agency’s secretary, Jeff Sandy, released a...

    A crusty old Army Sergeant Major found himself at a gala event hosted by a local liberal arts college. There was no shortage of extremely young idealistic ladies in attendance, one of whom approached the Sergeant Major for conversation. "Excuse me, Sergeant Major, but you seem to be a very serious man. Is something bothering you?" "Negative, ma'am. Just serious by nature." The young lady looked at his awards and decorations and said, "It looks like you have seen a lot of action." "Yes, ma'am, a lot of action." The young lady, tiring of trying to start up a conversation,...

    President-Elect Donald Trump flew out of New York City’s LaGuardia Airport Thursday morning aboard his private jet Trump Force One. As the plane taxied for takeoff firefighters paid their respects to Trump with a traditional water cannon salute.

    When a veteran or member of the armed forces dies, he or she is entitled to a ceremony that includes the presentation of a U.S. flag to a family member and a bugler blowing Taps. Most of the time, there is a three-volley rifle salute if requested by family members. But now, if the deceased served in the Air Force, the three-volley salute is not an option because the Air Force can no longer support riflemen for funeral services for veteran retirees. [....] “To me, without the 21-gun salute, it just does not make it complete a proper military burial,”...

    Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper told thousands of mourners the nation was deeply grateful to a soldier killed by a gunman in Ottawa last week. Mr Harper spoke at a funeral for Cpl Nathan Cirillo, 24, who was shot by Michael Zehaf-Bibeau while standing guard unarmed at Canada's war memorial. Zehaf-Bibeau, 32, then entered Canada's Parliament and fired dozens of shots. Mr Harper choked back tears as he addressed Cirillo's five-year-old son, Marcus Daniel Cirillo. "May time ease the searing pain of today," Mr Harper said. "And may [Marcus] some day find comfort in the fact that our entire country...

    FOR nearly three decades, I’ve felt conflicted about presidential salutes. After all, my United States Marine Corps instructors drilled into me the idea that “you never salute without a cover” which, in civilian, meant without a hat. My fellow Marines and I were also informed, in no uncertain terms, that we weren’t to salute out of uniform. (I don’t think that presidential blue suits, white shirts and red ties quite qualify.) So whenever I saw a president stepping off a helicopter and bringing hand to brow, my drill instructor’s unambiguous words came back to me with much of their original...
  • Obama’s latte salute is offensive because . . . death

    Ah, yes. The infamous “latte salute.” If you haven’t heard about it yet, Obama walked off a helicopter insouciantly clutching an environmentally-deadly Styrofoam latte cup in his right hand. When the two Marines waiting at the base of steps offered him a smart salute, Obama, who seemed to avoid looking at them, vaguely pawed his forehead with the hand holding that cup and then walked on. Here, see it for yourself: People in the military and conservatives were outraged. Liberals have been outraged at the outrage. Here are a few of the comments I’ve culled from liberals on my “real...

    Buzz surrounding a video showing President Obama stepping off Marine One on Tuesday and saluting two U.S. Marines while holding a travel cup has not been a point of conversation between the president and his top spokesman. The video uploaded to the White House Instagram on Tuesday showed Obama saluting the Marines while holding a white cup in his right hand as he apparently fiddled with his suit coat button with his left.

    The uproar over President Obama's "Latte Salute" as he exited Marine One Tuesday in New York has reached critical mass with social media outlets like Twitter and Facebook ablaze with indignation and outrage over his disrespectful and half-hearted gesture to the two Marines standing at attention for their Commander-In-Chief. Interestingly, a YouTube clip from the 1992 film Scent of a Woman has begun to go viral on Facebook.

    A quickie late afternoon palate cleanser via the NRCC. Two years ago, he’d have polished off his latte inside the cabin so that he could salute properly in front of the cameras. Two years later, he’s in the YOLO phase of his presidency. The guy just started bombing a new country in the Middle East without so much as gesturing towards Congress for statutory approval. Be happy he still salutes at all.I’m with Dan Foster here, in fact: At least he didn’t hand one of the Marines his latte.— Daniel Foster (@DanFosterType) September 23, 2014 Yeah. But don’t...

    President Obama returned a formal military salute by saluting with a coffee cup he had in his hand as he stepped off his U.S. Marine Corps helicopter in New York on Sunday. A video of the gesture that some are calling the “latte salute” was uploaded to the White House Instagram account. The salute is “the most important of all military courtesies,” says a manual, titled “Customs and Courtesies,” for Marine Corps officer candidates, The Daily Caller reported. “In general, do not salute when… carrying articles with both hands or being otherwise so occupied as to make saluting impractical,” the...

    President Obama today saluted his Marine Corps guard with a coffee cup as he descended to stairs of his Marine One chopper after landing in New York City. The White House, either not caring about or not understanding the show of disrespect, actually posted video of the moment on Instagram. This is actually even worse than forgetting to salute, don’t you think?

Pfc. Tariqka Sheffey, of the posts's 43rd Sustainment Group posted the image to her Instagram account with a caption that read, "This is me laying back in my car hiding so I don't have to salute the 1700 flag, KEEP ALL YOUR 'THATS SO DISRESPECTFUL/HOWRUDE/ETC.'
