When do you do colors at work?

Flags don't have a spear point for nothing

Colors, I'm not sure what exactly that means? If it has something to do with the pledge of allegiance, or the flag, I don't think that there are any rules that dictate one has to take of covers for said event. I may be wrong and as much as you disagree or agree with me I suspect that is the way it is. I know for the pledge at least, many people choose not to say it for various reasons, however they are peaceful during the presentation of it. If ones starts cussing and being loud I believe something can be done about that. However, if one is not doing said activity with out being a disruption I believe the law states its good to go.

Take pride that you and the prior service members know the proper procedure.

Don't say anything to the others. Mind your own business.

slap the hat off their head and tell them to shut the fuck up.

Have a USMC Gunnery Sargent drop by right before Colors. Then stand back and watch the fireworks.

Colors is the raising and lowering of our National Ensign (United States Flag). You may have seen this in movies on a military base; when the ceremony takes place you will also hear a bugle playing so if you are not withing sight of our National Ensign you know that the ceremony is taking place and you face the flag and salute.

For the civilians that show disregard, I would politely tell them to show some respect.
For the military personnel it would be an ass chewing...

Use peer pressure. If you yell at them, 90% of the people in the area won't say shit, and 9% will give you a hard time for being patriotic. The other 1% are evil.
