Holloman Air Force Base in Alamogordo played the national anthems of both Germany and the United States on November 9, 2007 due to Veterans’ Day celebration last weekend.
The following is some information on what American should do when the national anthems of other nations are played on military bases.
According to AFI 34-1201 – 2.17.3, during the playing of national anthems of friendly nations, military members and civilians should render the same customs and courtesies as those given during the playing of the United States National Anthem. The performance of the national anthem of any foreign country will be followed, without pause, by playing the National Anthem of the United States. When two or more foreign national anthems are played, the United States National Anthem is performed last.
