Metal cigarette lighter made by Zippo, with a flint and wick mechanism covered by a lid. On the front of the lid it says: "Soc Trang 68-69". On the front it has the Marine Corps symbol and aound it it says: "United States Marine Corps." On the back it says: "I love the fucking army and the army loves fucking me" On the bottom it is stamped "Zippo, Bradford, PA Pat 2517191." It was purchased in Vietnam as a soldier's lighter, but it may not be authentic from the 1960's era, as many were done later for the tourists.
