As you were . . .

His salute is fine - thumb is tucked in and his arm is as straight as can be expected under the circumstances. Furthermore, he is returning a salute even though he is not required to do so - a superior under a load (th' dawg) could just as easily return the salute with a simple "As you were."

What I can't understand is who they're saluting. There must be a sailor or marine off camera that we can't see. He *can't* be saluting that member of the Air Force with him - it's just not done.
Again, though, the other guy has made a name for himself as a war hero - he's supposed to know how to do it. My guy was just some flaky weekend fighter jock, right?
