Guam - Beginning July 4, US Naval Base Guam will play the National Anthem on the broadcast system. According to commanding officer Andy Anderson, "This is a time to take a moment of our day to show respect for the US flag and honor all the men and women who have fought to defend the freedoms we enjoy today."

The National Anthem will be played at 8 a.m. and sunset daily.

Military personnel are required to stop, face the direction of the flag or sound and render a salute if in uniform. Those not in uniform should stand at attention. All vehicles on base must also come to a complete stop and wait for the music to end.
