Veterans Glad Of Senate Action On Flag Law

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma military veterans say they're amazed to learn of a federal law restricting when they can salute the American flag.

The law says veterans and active military personnel who are not in uniform should place their hands over their hearts when recognizing the flag.

A proposal by Senator Jim Inhofe would make it clear military people can salute whether in uniform or civilian clothing.

The measure passed the Senate by unanimous consent

Retired Air Force Colonel Bob Powell of Tulsa says the current law - quote - "doesn't mean a damn" and that no one will stop him from saluting the flag.
