Fans of the TV show Blue Bloods have expressed confusion over the character Frank Reagan's frequent saluting. A poll on the r/bluebloods subreddit revealed that 42 out of 96 respondents found the gesture weird. Some fans pointed out that salutes should not be made while sitting down, but others noted that superior officers don't need to stand when returning a salute. Speculations arise that Frank's saluting style may come from his time in the Marines or perhaps due to his medical condition, such as arthritis. However, Tom Selleck, the actor who plays Frank Reagan, revealed that he occasionally receives salutes from real cops, which made him feel honored.
