Mark "Zippo" Smith

       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.

The callsign of the American on the ground who seemed to be holding it all together was Zippo...............

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!!

Remember Ft. Benning - the heat &  humidity? Remember being called "Shake'n'Bake? Good site to look up some of the old Sgt. (check your DD214 for your graduation date). Might find some familiar names here and have a thought for those brothers who were KIA.
