When Not to Salute
In Boats Personnel  in  charge  of  a  boat  that  is  not underway   salute   officers   that   come   alongside or  pass  nearby.  If  no  one  is  in  charge,  all those  in  the  boat  render  the  salute.  Boat coxswains  salute  all  officers  entering  or  leaving their  boats.  (Although  personnel  customarily stand when saluting, this formality is dispensed with   if   it   risks   the   safety   of   the   boat.) When  boat  awnings  are  spread,  enlisted  per- sonnel   sit   at   attention   while   saluting;   they do  not  rise.  Officers  seated  in  boats  rise  when rendering  salutes  to  seniors  who  are  entering or  leaving. When  boats  pass  each  other  with  embarked officers  or  officials  in  view,  the  senior  officer and coxswain in each boat render hand salutes. Officers seated in passing boats do not rise when saluting; the coxswain rises to salute unless it is dangerous  or  impracticable  to  do  so. In Civilian Attire When a junior recognizes a senior in the armed services  as  one  who  rates  a  salute,  the  junior initiates  a  proper  greeting  even  though  the  senior may  be  in  civilian  clothing.  If  the  senior  is covered, the junior may render a salute. In time of  war,  however,  an  officer  not  in  uniform  may be  deliberately  avoiding  disclosure  of  his  or  her naval  membership.  Therefore,  the  junior  should be   discriminate   about   following   the   normal (peacetime) rule. Normally,  you  do  not  render  salutes  while wearing  civilian  clothing.  If  necessary  to  avoid embarrassment  to  the  naval  service,  render  a salute  when  in  doubt. In a Group If enlisted personnel or officers are standing together and a senior officer approaches, the first to see the senior calls, “Attention!” All then face the  senior  officer  and  salute. Overtaking No junior should overhaul and pass a senior without  permission.  When  for  any  reason  the junior  must  pass,  he  or  she  does  so  to  the left,  When  abreast  of  the  senior,  the  junior salutes  and  asks,  “By  your  leave,  sir/ma'am?” The  senior  replies,  “Very  well,”  and  returns  the salute. Reporting When   reporting   on   deck   or   out-of-doors ashore, all personnel remain covered and salute accordingly. When reporting in an office, juniors uncover upon approaching the senior but do not salute. Seated An enlisted person being seated and without particular occupation rises upon the approach of an   officer;   faces   the   officer;   and   salutes,   if covered.   If   both   remain   in   the   same   general vicinity,  they  need  not  repeat  the  compliments. Seniority Unknown In  most  cases  officers  will  know  the  relative seniority of those with whom they are in frequent contact. However, in many situations, especially ashore,  that  is  an  obvious  impossibility.  To  be safe,  salute  at  such  times,  doing  so  without  delay. As a matter of fact, in practically every case where uncertainty  exists,  regardless  of  grade,  the  rule  is to render the salute. Sentries Sentries at gangways salute all officers going or  coming  over  the  side.  They  also  salute  when passing or being passed by officers close aboard in  boats  or  otherwise. Vehicles Enlisted personnel and officers salute all senior officers  riding  in  vehicles.  Those  in  the  vehicle both  render  and  return  salutes,  as  may  be required.  The  driver  of  a  vehicle  must  salute  if the vehicle is at a halt but may omit the salute while the vehicle is in motion to avoid endangering the  safety  of  the  occupants. Watch Relief Many watches aboard ship do not require the watch stander to be covered. However, personnel standing watch on the bridge are covered. When personnel  enter  the  pilothouse,  they  salute  the Boatswain’s  Mate  of  the  Watch  (BMOW)  and request permission to enter. The helmsman and lee   helmsman   salute   the   conning   officer   and request  permission  to  relieve  the  helm  and  lee helm.  The  conning  officer  and  the  OOD  also 7-14
