They're not playing the National Anthem, as many people have claimed. This picture was taken on Memorial Day 2009, and the band has just started playing Hail to the Chief. The others are saluting to show respect to their President and Commander in Chief. Later on in the ceremony the band does play the Anthem, and Obama, as is proper, puts his right hand over his heart.
