When you look closer, you see what the flag is really made of and what made the project so overwhelming.

The response has been overwhelming on social media with comments like “So Cool! Semper fi from a Marine mom!” and “No words to describe how beautiful this art work is. How proud you must feel! It brought tears to my eyes.”

We think Jacob absolutely knocked it out of the park with this one. What about you?
