WATCH: Marlboro County linemen raise American flag

MARLBORO COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A video of Marlboro County linemen raising the American flag has captured the attention of people across the country.

The linemen are with the Marlboro Electric Cooperative in Bennettsville.

The video on the company’s Facebook page shows the linemen climbing up a pole and then passing the American flag up until it reaches the top.

Once the flag is raised, they take off their helmets to honor the flag.

It’s also important to note that Thursday, April 18 is National Lineman Appreciation Day, so be sure to thank linemen who keep our power on, especially in dangerous weather conditions.
