When you live on a military base, this is life. EVERY HOUR ON THE HOUR!

Of course, the young lady can affirm that he was already at attention even before the anthem played.

 Reminds me of military days when EVERYONE walking outside at 4:59 pm would duck inside to avoid having to stand still for the nightly blaring of Taps.

“Taps,” or “To the Colors”?

I’ll take your word for it, Lost.

Thinking of a wartime cartoon — also New Yorker? — of a young soldier and WAC approaching each other, saluting crisply, and then lunging into a clinch.

I was wondering how far back you would have to go to find a funny “New Yorker” cartoon. Now I see. 1935

Bob, tell me what’s funny because I don’t get this one at all. I don’t see why she doesn’t just stand up herself unless she an invalid.

Lola… because that would take too long. A gentleman is expected to stand IMMEDIATELY upon hearing the national anthem.

Personally, I’ve never understood why one has to demonstrate loyalty to the nation before being allowed to watch a ballgame or concert therein.

It’s worse than you think, Ed. When a team from Canada comes to play, they play “Oh, Canada” too.

That actually makes MORE sense, James, to honor the visitors. And, of course, if they’re already playing the SSB, it would be rude not to play the visitors’ anthem as well.
