Mark "Zippo" Smith

ZIPPO'S CORNER This site would not be complete if it did mention in some way or form Major Mark "Zippo" Smith. He, by himself is a major reason a lot of guys not only supported the hardships of the boonies but also in many, many cases made it back alive. All those who knew him during their stay in Vietnam had a great respect for his extraordinary ability to do the right thing at the right time. We, who know him, admire and support what he did for us and what he has done for the cause of all P.O.W./M.I.A. I salute him here for all he has done.

Here's a bombshell story you haven't seen in the national media.
A highly-decorated Army Special Forces officer, now retired and running a POW search network from Bangkok, tells us that the Vietnamese army is itching to release 572 Americans, now being held in Laos camps.

This site is a must. Jim "Zut" Davis is one of the greatest guy's I know. He was the M-60 Gunner of my squad. Sure, he has gotten older (like all of us) and put on a few pounds (like some of us) over the years, but for the important part, he has not changed at all. He is still the same guy that I knew in Nam, he will always have that special ability to remain young in his head. If there were more people like him............well, maybe it's better that there aren't, because he is unique!! Plus he has a talent that those who knew him might never have expected: CREATIVITY. If you want to have a good time and have some fun click on this web site........I guarantee you will not regret it!!

A Very, very good site on POW / MIA.
