Step 1: Stand up straight Stand up as straight as possible. Excellent posture is very important to a proper salute. Step 2: Keep arms at your side Keep both arms at your side, hands pointed directly at the ground, fingers together. Step 3: Raise right hand Raise your right hand, keeping hand straight and fingers together, until the tip of your forefinger touches the outside edge of your right eyebrow. Your hand should continue the line of your forearm. Tip Ideally, your upper arm should be parallel to the ground and your forearm at a 45-degree angle. Step 4: Tilt palm down Tilt the palm of your hand down so that it faces slightly inward to you. Step 5: Hold salute Hold the salute for 15 to 30 seconds. Tip For extra effectiveness, maintain eye contact throughout the salute. Step 6: Put hand back down Put your hand back down to your side in one swift motion. Any embellishment—like jerking your arm outward before it goes down—is considered poor taste. Did You Know? Modern militaries do not salute while deployed in the field, to prevent enemy snipers from identifying officers.
