American Sign Language: "duty"

The sign for "duty" taps a "D" hand on the top of the non-dominant wrist.

Make sure you do the sign for DUTY with the non-dominant hand palm-down.


The reason I point out the importance of doing the sign for DUTY with the non-dominant hand "palm down" is because if the palm is up, it is a version of the sign for "DOCTOR").

Memory aid: A doctor's duty is to help people. (Sign: DOCTOR DUTY HELP PEOPLE).
