Another Lighter Find - SAC 4th Strategic Support SQDN.

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I added another Japanese made Vulcan lighter to my collection today. I had to take the day off from work to go to the doctor, and since I was close to the DFW area, I figured I'd check out a couple of antique malls I visit from time-to-time. I'm sure glad I did! I found this little well worn gem stuck in the back of a crowded display case. It is very used and not in the best shape as you can see, but I was very happy to find it.

 

Here's a shot of the front side.

The back is engraved to the 4th Strategic Support Squadron from back when SAC was still in the transport business. A quick look on Google tells me that the 4th SS SQDN was only at Dyess from 1957 - 1961 so this one is pretty old.

 

Thanks for looking :)

Thanks gents.

 

Further research shows they flew the C-124 Globemaster while at Dyess AFB which is pretty cool!
