THE SCOUT SALUTE
The Scout salute signifies respect and courtesy. You use it to salute the flag of the United States of America. During
some ceremonies, you may also salute your Webelos leaders or Boy Scout leaders.
To give the Scout salute, place the fingers of your right hand in position as for the Scout sign. Bring the hand smartly
up to your head, palm sideways, until your forefinger touches the edge of your cap above the right eye or, if you are capless,
your forehead above the right eye. When the salute is completed, snap your hand down quickly to your side.
