Cleveland, Ohio (Aug. 30, 2006) - Amphibious transport dock ship USS Cleveland (LPD 7) Commanding Officer Capt. Frank McCulloch accepts a Cleveland Indians flag presented to him by Major League Baseball Hall of Fame Inductee and World War II Navy veteran Bob Feller before the start of the Major League Baseball game between the Indians vs. Toronto Blue Jays. The original flag presented to Feller by Mculloch had been flown aboard the USS Cleveland for nearly a decade. In gratitude Feller presented McCulloch and other Cleveland Sailors with a new Indians flag on behalf of the city of Cleveland and Indians organization. Cleveland Sailors are in their ship's namesake town for Cleveland Navy Week festivities. Twenty-six such Navy Weeks are planned this year in cities throughout the U.S., arranged by the Navy Office of Community Outreach (NAVCO). The mission of NAVCO is to enhance the Navy's brand image in areas with limited exposure to the Navy. U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Jason J. Perry
