Give 'Em Hell

Discussing the etiquette of  men's hats, I forgot to tell you what may have been one of the best moments in my sister's life.  Esty was stationed at the Office of Naval History in Washington, and had a basement apartment in a row house right opposite the old House Office Building--this would have been in the early 1950s.  And one day while she was in full uniform, she saw the Commander in Chief coming down the sidewalk right toward her.  She saluted him and
       Harry Truman stopped, stood at attention, and
                         RAISED HIS HAT TO HER.

Give 'em hell, Harry!
