For those of you who actually spent more than a few months in the military, what's wrong with the picture of Kerry in this article?

Yep, not really a military salute. Looks more like a guide from Lewis & Clark looking for the rapids downstream.

The description of a proper salute:

To salute, raise your right hand smartly until the tip of your forefinger (index finger) touches your headgear, above above and slightly to the right of your right eye. Keep your thumb and fingers extended and joined, palm to the left, with your hand and wrist straight. Hold your upper arm horizontal, and your forearm inclined at an angle of 45º.

The key, of course, being the "with your hand and wrist straight" part, lending ongoing credence to the limp-wristed description of Kerry.
