garb811 said:Another take on the origin of the salute from The Met's website under their Misconceptions and Questions Relating to Armor:If you consider the salute to be anachronistic, I suppose you'd consider the entire idea of what we do for drill to be as well. After all, the entire point of drill was to train and execute tactical maneuvers on the battlefield, not for pomp and circumstance.
Personally that's my take. I think we'd be better if if we took all the time spent doing drill and did... literally anything else.
