Perseverance and Flag

In case you missed this on social media (and who doesn't need to take a break from facebook!)...

David and Veronica Hinckle's Perseverance dramatically recognized America's armed services members with this grand flag on Memorial Day.  Not our usual celebration and start to summer, but perhaps a solitary boat flying the colors was most appropriate this year.  This single post went viral--in the best of ways--garnering almost 5,000 impressions in just two days.  FBYC also created quite a stir on the local Deltaville FB page and generated tremendous goodwill among our neighbors.

Thanks to the Flecks for capturing this impressive photo and to the Hinckles for a most memorable image.  If you use the rule of an inch of flag for each foot of vessel, this flag would fit a 500 foot navy ship!  But it fit Perseverance perfectly this day.
