Maybe a lot of you already knew this, but I just learned that within the past few years Congress has passed legislation allowing veterans and non-uniformed active duty military to render the hand salute during the playing of the National Anthem. I've been a vet a lot longer than I was active duty, but when the first notes are heard, it is an automatic response to snap to attention facing the flag, the right arm comes up, and I have had to consciously redirect my hand from the military salute to the "heart" salute. The heart salute, still an option, is fine, but for me the hand salute is so much more appropriate for those who have taken that oath and honorably performed their duty.
