Camping World Inc. and Good Sam Enterprises LLC announced a new project to install massive American flags at various Camping World supercenters across the country to honor veterans.
According to a press release, the flags measure 30-feet-by-60-feet or 40-feet-by-80-feet, depending on zoning regulations, and the poles are 130 feet tall. In many cases these will be the largest flying American flags in the surrounding area.
“Our company places extreme pride and value on our country and its veterans. A large percentage of our employees and also customers are veterans, and we want to honor them, their dedication to our country and to our local communities,” said Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO of Camping World and Good Sam. “By making this proud statement, our goal is to bring local communities together in celebration of everything that has been accomplished by veterans for our country.”
Camping World welcomes veterans and the local community to attend the formal flag raising ceremonies at supercenters that install the American flags. Employees will also personalize the ceremonious procedure, including signing the gold ball topper on the flag pole.
Designated employees will be assigned to the work and maintenance associated with flying the flag, such as bringing flags in during severe weather and performing consistent examinations for rips and tears.
Camping World SuperCenters in Tucson, Ariz., New Braunfels, Texas, Jacksonville, Fla., Redding, Calif., and Lubbock, Texas, are among the first locations to display these massive American flags. Upcoming locations that are slated to raise these flags include Mesa, Ariz., Coburg, Ore., Ocala, Fla., Valencia, Calif., Meridian, Idaho and Lake Park, Ga., with many more to follow.
