At the cemetery, the young Marine comes to Elaine and offers to fire his rifle in honor of her son's passing. The young Marine says "I'll fire all 21 [volleys] if you like." This is a violation of military funeral protocol. In the United States, Twenty-One Gun Salutes are reserved for funerals for presidents, ex-presidents, or presidents-elect only. At military funerals for soldiers and sailors, protocol states that a Three-Gun Salute (three volleys) will be performed by the honor guard. A typical honor guard will consist of 7 riflemen and this is often mistaken to be a 21-gun salute (7 rifles being fired three times each. 7 X 3 = 21). Even so, this still is considered a three-gun salute no matter how many rifles are fired. The proper action by the young Marine is to fire three volleys only. See more
