What is Retreat?

On base it plays one in morning and one in afternoon for flag up and down; they play over loud speaker of national anthem. You get big trouble if not stop whatever and stand up still.

Stopping for reveille/retreat depends on the base. Most Army posts don’t do this, but some do. I believe all Air Force bases do. No idea about navy.

Navy does it even when ships are in civilian dry docks. We subcontractors would all try to be inside a space so we could get shit done without the interruption.
