American Sign Language: "Army," "military," or "soldier"

The sign for "Army" or military (or soldier) looks a lot like a person holding on to a rifle.
If you are right handed, the right "A" hand is held near the chest. The left "A" hand is held near the left side of your abdomen.  The hands are about two inches out from the body at the beginning of the sign.  Then you simultaneously thump both hands on your body.  Use a double motion (in-out-in).

ARMY / "military"

Sample Sentence: Was your dad in the Army? = YOUR DAD ARMY PAST?
