Why do you call a building to attention when an officer is leaving?
In US Military
It is military protocol to call a room or building to attention when a senior officer enters or leaves. That is, if the highest ranking officer in the room is a 2nd Lieutenant, and a Captain enters, the LT would call the room to attention. If, for instance, the building holds the offices of the commanding General, the building is called to attention when he enters in the morning, and when he leaves at days end. Unless he give specific orders to the contrary, this will not happen again throughout the day, provided one of his superiors does not enter the building (this would never occur unannounced, and the General's Adjutant would likely be the officer to call attention when this happened).
The purpose is tradition, prespect, recognition of the chain of command.

Answer to why Truman left office. Truman was FDR's last Vice-President. FDR was innaugurated in March 1945. He died the following month, on April 12th. Truman served almost two complete terms. Until his predecessor, FDR, no president served more than two terms. This practice was established by our …first President, George Washington. (This limitation is now part of our constitution.) Additionally, Truman had committed the US in the Korean War. This conflict became very unpopular and Truman was vilified as a result. He barely won the 1948 election. His approval ratings were about as low as President Bush's is today. ( Full Answer )

Despite years of brilliant public service, John Adams was defeated in the election of 1800 by Thomas Jefferson (his former vice-president). During his campaign for re-election, the incumbent faced heavy criticism from both the Democrat-Republic party as well as from the "high Federalists" of his own… party. The Democrat-Republicans attacked Adams' taxes, accused Adams of supporting the British with his foreign policy, and also violating the constitution by his implementation of the Alien and Sedition Acts. The "High Federalists" led by Alexander Hamilton thought that Adams was too moderate. Adams only won about 39% of the vote in 1800. He became depressed because he thought he had left the presidency disgraced and unappreciated. He did not even stay for his successor and former friend Thomas Jefferson's inauguration (making him only one of three presidents to do so), and left the White House quietly under the cover of nightfall. Albeit, in 1800, Adams was sixty-five (already exceeding the life-expectancy of the day, which was thirty-five for males by thirty years). Following his defeat, he retired to Peacefield, and lived until 1826, seeing his son John Quincy become the sixth president of the United States. why did john Quincy Adam leave office John Adam: It was because Adam passed the Alien and Sedition Acts which caused the people to believe that Adam was leaning toward monarchism. In fact the republicans started a rumor, as a revenge , and said that Adam wanted to be tyranny and wanted the people to be slaves. In other words, He lost the election because people believe that he wanted to be king. John Quincy Adam:He refused to play the game of politics so congress started to ignore most of his proposal. Nobody favored him meanwhile, the jacksonians were trying to find ways to make Andrew Jackson their new President ( Full Answer )

Will this word help...??? Urgent - a : calling for immediate attention b : conveying a sense of urgency or Significant -a : important; of consequence
On deck or outdoors, "Attention on Deck" is generally called by whoever sees the officer first if the assembly of personnel present isn't generally aware of the officers' approach, or if the officer appears suddenly from inside a building, when that officer is within saluting range or near saluting …range of the nearest junior person present. If indoors or aboard ship, it's called when the officer enters the space if the protocol is required. At a formal unit assembly, the command will generally be given by the Senior Enlisted present or Senior Officer - it depends on who's present at the time and what the unit regulations are. For Quarterdecks, the Quarterdeck Watch (or Topside Watch on a Submarine) will call AoD when the officer comes into saluting range. For Flag Officers (including the CO), the watch will ring the ship's bell an announce their arrival over the ship's 1MC circuit (General Announcement). In other words - outdoors and on deck, it's never a sure thing, but for most units it's when the officer is within saluting range of the nearest junior member to that officer. Indoors, it's easy, as it's always when the officer enters the room. Each unit/command usually has its own instructions for Naval protocol - this includes Marine Corps Commands, as they are a part of the Navy and use Navy terminology as well as their own.

Harold Holt, Prime Minister of Australia from January 1966 to December 1967, was notorious for the unusual circumstances of his disappearance, and hence his departure from office. On 17 December 1967, Holt went swimming at Cheviot Beach near Portsea, on the Mornington Peninsula, south of Melbourne,… Victoria. After plunging into the notoriously rough surf, Holt disappeared. He was never seen again, and there have been many theories regarding his fate since then. These theories include that he committed suicide, faked his own death in order to run away with his mistress, or that he was a Chinese spy. Despite an extensive search, neither his body nor any trace of his clothes was ever found. He was officially presumed dead on 19 December 1967. ( Full Answer )

There are no automatic duties for an ex-president. What he does depends on his health, his age and his inclinations. Some take an active interest in politics, others more or less bow out. Some, e.g. VanBuren, T. Roosevelt, Fillmore and Cleveland run for president again. Taft got appointed to the Sup…reme Court. A. Johnson was elected US Senator and John Q. Adams became a Congressman.

Coolidge had spent 3 years as Vice President and 5 as President, and felt that he was tired of the demands of Washington politics. Had he won re-election in 1928 (rather than deferring to Herbert Hoover), by 1933 he would have been President longer than anyone to that point in history.
Nope - The reason uniformed personnel come to attention is to recognise the superior officer's rank. Civilians - being unconnected with the military - are not required to demonstrate this recognition.
You're supposed to, but it really comes down to the unit. Officers and Warrant Officers of that unit - who are prone to going in and out of that shop - will most likely be a bit more lax on that policy, understanding that the enlisted personnel in that shop are going to be in situations where it may… be very inconvenient to suddenly stop and assume the position of attention. But if, say, the Brigade or Division Commander suddenly walks into that maintenance shop, you'd better believe they're going to expect personnel in that shop to come to the position of attention as they enter.

Do you call the building to at ease when a sergeant major enters and there is an officer in the building?
Yes you do. Example would be if you are at your company. including your company commander, lets just say hanging around then all of a sudden the Brigade Sergeant Major pops in for a visit. The first person to see him calls the company to at ease, by loudly saying "At Ease". Any officer out ranks any… nco. At the same time a Brigade is a higher echelon then a Company or a Battalion. So that being said give respect to your boss and his boss and his bosses boss ( Full Answer )
No. The command of "At ease!" is given in facilities such as dining halls, latrines, and hospital wards where coming to attention is not practical.
When any Warrant or Commissioned officer enters a room, unless there is another officer of the same of higher grade already present. Please note that in certain rooms, such as a dining area or bathroom, rather than "Attention" the proper command would be "At ease". Generally, you call the room …to attention only if a officer entering the room is of a higher rank than the people already in the room. For example, if the room is only filled with enlisted people, you would call the room to attention if an officer of any rank entered the room. Even a 2nd Lieutenant. If, say, a Lt. Colonel is already in the room, and a Major enters, you would NOT call the room to attention. However, if a full bird Colonel enters, you WOULD call the room to attention. It is common for officers to excuse a room from calling to attention if they plan to enter and leave a lot. Rooms with a lot of activity, usually have an unwritten rule that the room is only called to attention for officer who part of the staff or regular visitors. In the Command Post, for example, pilots of all ranks are common visitors. The room would usually only be called to attention for O-6 and higher. Otherwise, nothing would get done. ( Full Answer )
