A .223 does need a muzzle brake if you are precision shooting for groups, if you don't you have to realign every shot. I don't concern myself with the guy next to me, I paid my range fees and as far as I'm concerned he can move. Those shooters shooting .308's and higher calibers do not concern themselves when they're blowing the hats off the guy's on both sides of them. It's all part of the sport. I believe in having respect for people at the range but when they whine about a muzzle brake they can leave afaic.

I am indeed a huge fan of the Garand action.

You are technically right but in reality most muzzle attachments are a combination of both. All proper muzzle brakes will also hide the flash because it's really just having a piece of metal with holes in it that accomplishes the flash hiding. Properly directing gasses to cut down on recoil is not easy, so I suggest doing your research and spending at least $100 if you want a true muzzle brake.

Not sure of people stating that 5.56 doesn't have recoil. It does and a muzzle brake does help. A better option is a brake that adjusts muzzle rise vs recoil. Anyone who rapid fires can confirm, especially with a carbine gas system.
