May I Salute You?

by Patricia Salwei

I approached the entrance to Ft Belvoir's medical facility last year as an
old veteran puttered towards me. Easily over 80 year old, stooped and slow,
I barely gave him a second glance because on his heels was a full bird

As they approached, I rendered a sharp salute and barked, "Good
morning, Sir!" Because they were heel to toe, I began my salute as the old
veteran was about two paces from me. He immediately came to life!
Transformed by my greeting, he rose to his full height, returned my salute
with pride, and exclaimed, "Good morning captain!" I was startled, but the
full bird behind him was flabbergasted. The colonel stopped mid‑salute,
smiled at me and quietly moved on.
