Answer:  BY HIS SIR NAME

(That is all they CAN say.  Yes Sir!  Or, No Sir!  They can’t very well say:  Hey, Abrams!  Hey, Franks!  Hey, Clark!  Wouldn’t be respectful.  They might get thrown in the brig!  Names are kind of irrelevant in the military, anyway.  They usually just refer to each other by their rank, and there is a distinct and strict pecking order.  I would have been terrible in the military.  It’s a good thing the draft ended when I turned 18.

Somehow, the Jumble guys have avoided using the clue word “hover” . . . until today.  Our old pal, ralis95, has yet another new clue word to add to his world famous clue word database!  All four of the jumbles are coming up as new.  The answer letter layout was a beautiful twelve letter jumble.  The quotation marks were probably the biggest clue to today’s final answer.

Fine military cartoon.  I did not realize that they hold their left hands folded backwards during a salute!  Is that SOP, or just Jeff’s artistic license?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
