Sheboygan insurer raises flag on nation's tallest flagpole

Acuity Mutual Insurance Co., of Sheboygan, Wisconsin, unfurled a massive American flag Friday on what it says is the tallest flagpole in the United States.

The flagpole is 338 feet tall.

    "It's amazing, the way (the flag) went up and just opened up," said Matthew Taub, a 23-year-old marketing analyst with Acuity Mutual Insurance Co. "It was just huge. Just having people drive by and honk their horns, it sends shivers down your spine."

    Taub was one of 17 employees connected with the military who carried a 7,200-square-foot flag to the pole Friday - the same day he was to deploy to Iraq with the Army National Guard's 120th Field Artillery Regiment.

    The flagpole is part of Acuity's $45 million expansion project. The new pole and flag have been dedicated to Sheboygan's military veterans.
