Update: Bidding canceled. Nice to hear that people called in and complained. Seemed like a no-brainer.
Yes, you heard that right. Tom Taylor with Estate Auction Company had this to say:
It’s really one of the neatest things I’ve ever seen. This person may have given their life for their country. It’s something of honor and historical significance.
Yes, it is, but do you really believe that auctioning it off is the best way to pay tribute to that sacrifice? As of Sunday the highest bid is $275.
