1. In Formation- Individuals in formation do not salute or return salutes except at the command "Present Arms". The individual in charge salutes for the entire formation. The unit should be at attention before the commander salutes.

  2. Not in Formation- On the approach of an officer, a group of individuals not in formation is called to attention by the first person noting the officer, regardless of whether that person is the highest ranking member of the group. All come to attention and salute. Individuals participating in games and members of details do not salute. The individual in charge of a team or work detail salutes for the entire team or detail, but does not call the team or detail to attention.
