fanfic fix

Questions regarding Arlington National Cemetery

I'm working on a fic in which SG-1 visits Arlington to pay their respects at a particular grave.

A few questions:

Would Sam and Jack be in dress blues? Would they salute the grave, the flag, other military officers that might be present? (The deceased may or may not have been an officer.)

Teal'c always wears some kind of headgear to hide his tattoo when he's onworld and offbase. Would this be a problem?

If I want the story to take place on Memorial Day itself, would this present any changes to procedure?

Thanks!
