Well, since Joe bombed me with that T-Bird insert, I needed to get another one. So I ordered this last night and it should be here by Friday. I'm half Irish and very proud of my Celtic roots, so when I saw it...

Nice lighter proud of all my roots part if yours and some Indian as well. My wedding ring is Celtic. Nice find

I was at 2/20th SFG(A) during that timeframe... Did a couple of short stints in your neck of the woods training with the AC130's (call for fire exercises, etc), working with CCT, etc...

Small world...

I'm betting we "talked" to your bird at least once or twice on one of those rotations...

Zippo closed its Niagara Falls Factory down in July 2002 this lighter was made in Feb of 02. I'm not sure how long after Feb they kept making but i still think its pretty cool.

Hey brothers,

Curious to see what zippos you guys have.. post em if you got em!


Not sure if anyone still looks at this thread but here is my EDC.
This little guy was carried by a family friend at the D-Day invasion. It also went on two tours in Afghanistan with my neighbors son. I figured if it made it through the beaches at Normandy certainly it could be good luck to my neighbors son. He came home safely twice and brought my lighter back both times. The lighter will remain with me now. I have the original insert but I use it with a butane torch insert.
Thanks for listening.
