We were taught to place our hand over our heart while reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. We were taught to stand at respectful attention when the national anthem plays, and so that's what I do.

To me, the practice of placing one's hand over one's heart during the national anthem is a recent phenomenon, and seems to me like grandstanding.
