(FoxNews) – The last American combat flag from the Vietnam War is being put
up for auction.

War hero Army Col. Chester Bailey McCoid took the large flag with him when
he became the last ground force soldier to leave the South Vietnam port city
of Da Nang on March 29, 1973, a month before the fall of Saigon.

According to the Washington Examiner, the flag is being sold by the Maryland
auctioneer Alexander Historical Auctions. The live and online auction of the
flag and other historic mementos is slated for this week on Tuesday and
Wednesday.

Bill Panagopulos, president of the auction house, called the flag “a historic
relic from a war which still stirs controversy at its very mention.” He expects
the flag to fetch at least $10,000 or as much as $50,000.
