I would very much like to get information about a Zippo lighter with inscription wich the father of a friend of mine bought some 17 years ago in vietnam ,this is only one of my sourches (while i don't really know my way around the internet) O.k i will discribe the lighter; on the opening side it say's(top-side) Vietnam below it say's 66-67 and underneath nha trang Then on the lower side of the lighter is a shield devided into 3 sections with in the middle a fla-ming sword,on the other side is engraved:"it seems the days in the army are the longest days on the earth". The bottom says; 4stripesZIPPO4stripes and the pat.nr2517191 wich date it indeed at 1966. I really would like to know more about the regiment(?)what used this shield, so if you could tell me i'd be much obliged. sincerely,Hans Ritzema
