Hi,

 

I found this little Vulcan lighter on eBay recently. I was initially drawn to it since it has Camp Wolters engraved on the back. I had never heard of a U.S. Army Security Agency Battalion before so I had to look it up to see what the heck USASA BN stood for! Seems that it was primarily an intelligence unit so the Latin motto on the crest - "Dicite Audiamus" (You Speak, We Listen) - is very apt.

 

Does the "SVC" stand for service in this case?

 

All in all a neat lighter that I'm happy to add to my Camp/Fort Wolters collection. Thanks for looking.

 

-Derek
