Upon graduation from the Reconnaissance Team Leaders Coarse at Camp Long Thanh (B-53), OPS- 35 personnel received a US Certificate of Training and a Zippo lighter. The plain Zippos were acquisitioned from the CLT Club / Mess Associations proceeds and obtained through the Saigon Post Exchange. The lighters were then customized with a MAC V SOG crest affixed to the face and the reverse was engraved with Vietnam and the year of issue. These Zippos were then personalized by the recipient and were not intended to be carried on missions.
This lighter was presented to Martin Jordan when he graduated from 1-0 School at Camp Long Thanh.
