USS LUCE (DDG-38) Guided Missile Destroyer (previously a Destroyer Leader DLG-7) Custom Zippo lighter and full size Zippo, both 1978 and a Zippo DDG-38 belt buckle, all purchased in the ships' store.

 

Plus, a full size STANAVFORLANT Zippo purchased at the same time when LUCE was the Standing Nato Forces Atlantic Flagship.  The stickpins are from the same cruise and are the two West Germans ships that were in our squadron, Fregatte Karlsruhe (F223) and Zerstörer Schleswig-Holstein (D182)

Here is the USN squadron I was in, from December 1959 to March 1963.  Heavy Attack Squadron Six (VAH-6, HATRON SIX) flying A3D-2's. Home base was Whidbey Island, Washington.  We/I made 3 Westpac cruises with this squadron aboard the USS Ranger CVA-61.  The emblem on the lighter is VAH-6's Crest and they were called the "Fluers". The lighter is the smaller size and made by PRINCE,   It is about the only memento of my service other than photos. Thanks for looking.

Great lighters!

Here is a few I have laying around the house.

Lighter from Admiral Jimmy Thach, inventor of the WW2 Thach weave and WW2 Naval Aviator Ace.
