US FLAG CARRIED ON APOLLO 7.
Flown on Apollo 7, a US flag, silk, 6 by 4 inches. Inscribed "Flown on Apollo 7, Wally Schirra." Mounted on a Typed Letter Signed by Walter M. Schirra.

Schirra's letter reads: "This United States flag was flown on Apollo 7 during October 11 to 22, 1968. Apollo 7 was the first manned flight of the command and service modules. The mission objectives included extensive tests of all spacecraft systems and the demonstration of rendezvous capability. The flight was 101 percent successful!
Walter Cunningham, Donn Eisele, and I carried a very small number of flags during our mission. I have written that it was flown on Apollo 7 and signed the flag on the lower white stripe."
