Virginia Flaggers Introduce Newest Weapon in Flagger Arsenal

On the Boulevard today, the Va Flaggers gathered for our weeknight flagging, and for the introduction of the newest weapon in our arsenal....

The M.F.R.U...MOBILE FLAGGER RESPONSE UNIT!


This vehicle was a news station weather satellite truck in its former life.

Over the past several months, it has undergone a transformation, and has been outfitted to extend a 70' pole and fly a 10x15 flag!

There is still body, paint and detail work to be completed, but we wanted to give her a test run, and the results exceeded our wildest expectations.


This is a photo from the Boulevard, several blocks from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts:


The possibilities are endless and we are excited about the opportunity to take flagging to new heights in our fight to RETURN the flags...and RESTORE the honor.

We had a meeting last night after flagging, and with the restaurant owner's permission, raised the flag behind the restaurant.  Everyone got the chance to see the mechanics of the truck, and cars kept pulling in the parking lot to find the flag.  This was the view from Krispy Kreme Donuts on Broad Street, a few blocks away...


Have we mentioned...that flagging is FUN?!?!

RETURN the flags!
RESTORE the honor!

Remember during the civil war there were no overhead power lines. But there are now. So before raising the mast check what's above you. Or as the news truck guys say: "Look up and Live".

Clever battle wagon. Capable of taking the high ground wherever you go. More down to earth than when y'all took to the air last year pulling that sign.
