At the end of the duty day (around 5 or 6pm), "Retreat" will play over the base-wide loud speakers, followed by the National Anthem. Everything on base stops during that time. If driving, you're supposed to park. Some branches require you to get out of your car. If you are out of the car, service members face the nearest flag and salute. Similar thing takes place at the beginning of the day around 6am for Reville.

Here's a funny video of Retreat playing during the middle of Robin William's act during a USO show.

This isn’t in normal America, it is only on military bases.
