Your salute is left handed...  the emoji is a proper salute with the right hand. 

As someone that throws out high fives quite regularly I assure you that I know an proper salute.

You were serious? 

I thought this was a good troll, but it's even funnier now! :Smile_veryhappy:

Go have someone salute you with their right hand, then the left... tell me which one looks like your "right handed salute". 

Unless you intended your salute to a salute to yourself as viewed in a mirror.  

Also note that I am sitting at my desk in NDHQ in my 19th year in the RCAF as I respond to this.

It does not look like that at any time other than in a mirror. 

As someone that not only does drill, but taught it as well, I can assure you that you are wrong.

Do Brits still salute with their palm out or was that some caricature on comedy shows?

They do, except the RN. The RCMP, and I believe the Aussies and Kiwis do as well.

O7 is a left handed salute when the person saluting is facing you. 

<o or :Smile_honoring: is a right handed (proper) salute when the person saluting is facing you. 

Any 8 week E2 coming out of boot camp could tell you that. 

The only time you would ever consider saluting left hand is if your right hand/arm is incapacitated or missing (serious injury, in a sling or cast, amputated, etc)

You salute with your right hand per U.S. Military standard. If you are being saluted the hand that goes up is their right, which is your left side when facing them.

Here's an experiment.

  1. Salute any military or ex-military
  2. Take a picture
  3. Place picture next to your post
  4. Is the individual in the picture and the one in your post saluting with the same hand?

Here's a shortcut:
