Yesterday, hrmfc — FOTM’s beloved long time reader and commenter — participated in a Memorial Day Celebration in Ocean City, Maryland, and took these amazing photos.
The event was sponsored by Ocean City but coordinated with a group of Marines.
“I couldn’t get a panoramic shot because I was holding the flag, which weighed 800 pounds! There were at least 250 people there. Most were holding the flag but before we unfurled it we required others to be near so they could go under it to keep it from touching the ground.
When the flag was completely unfurled, we sang The Star Spangled Banner and God Bless America. It was a memorable experience and a good way to honor our fallen countrymen.”
Here’s a stunning bird’s eye view of the flag:
Thank you, hrmfc, for sharing these pics with us!
