Original U.S. Army Transportation Corps Fringed Flag - 55" x 35"

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. The U.S. Army Transportation Corps was established 31 July 1942, by Executive Order 9082. The Transportation Corps is a combat service support branch of the U.S. Army, and was headquartered at Fort Eustis, Virginia, but moved to Fort Lee, Virginia in 2010. It is also one of three U.S. Army logistics branches, the others being the Quartermaster Corps and the Ordnance Corps. The Transportation Corps is responsible for the movement of personnel and material by truck, rail, air, and sea. Its motto is "Spearhead of Logistics," and it is currently the third smallest branch of the Army.

This is a very nice example of a U.S. Issue Medic "Red Cross" flag. The flag is constructed of what looks to be red rayon or nylon, and measures approximately 55 x 35 inches, with a large Transportation Corps emblem sewn into the center. The exterior is fringed, which would indicate this is probably a flag for display inside a building, and not one for use in the field.

The flag is in good very good condition, with some overall fading due to age and exposure to light. The stitched on logo is retained well, though portions of it are loose, as the fabric started to fry on the edge, and slipped out from the stitching.

A great item for any U.S. Army logistics display!
