Re; Joe-Allen comment - I agree with you, if a base commander decided we neede to wear sparkles in your hair the prudent thing to do was wear the sparkles until he left.
When I was in the 101st back in the 70s the CG required us to wear blue berets that we had to buy at the surplus store off the main gate. If you didn’t you had to wear a steel pot.

I never had to salute an NCO that I can recall. The dumbest thing I remember was saluting a passing officer’s car, and some would stop and chew you out if you didn’t.
Ah, you weren’t looking for blue bumper stickers?
