Ни для кого не секрет, что в истории 20-го века, помимо двух мировых войн, нескольких локальных конфликтов, парочки сексуальных революций имели место быть другие интересные вещи. Например Вьетнамская война, которая хоть и начиналась как внутренний конфликт в Северном Вьетнаме, но потом переросла в настоящую бойню с участием кучи напалма,  вырезанием деревень и Америки.

Закономерный вопрос, что там делала Америка, обсуждаться в этом посте не будет. Как впрочем и пустые размышления о причинах, перечисление примеров жестокого обращения и удивления по поводу того, что маленькие вьетнамцы смогли продержаться аж 20 лет, 12 из которых они провели в окопах, скрываясь от пуль М-16.

Дело в том, что хоть американские военные и были полностью снаряжены государством, но государство явно не думало о том, что сидя под пулеметным огнем, или разбирая завалы трупов знакомых после очередной бойни, сынам Америки определенно захочется покурить.

Поэтому в военных лавочках продавались Zippo. Она играла важную роль. Во-первых, Zippo - это зажигалка, и от нее можно прикурить, во вторых, так как она с виду напоминает небольшую гарелку, ее и использовали в этом ключе, в третьих, так как она не предоставлялась правительством Соединенных Штатов, то покупались отдельно, за кровные деньги, потому и имела особое значение для каждого ее обладателя.

За долгие годы Вьетнамской войны, плохо понимающие, что происходят, армейцы пытались выразить свое отношение к происходящему, подчеркнуть некие аспекты своей жизни, или просто позабавиться. Поэтому на зажигалках того времени, стали появляться философские и не очень надписи, нацарапанные армейским ножом. К тому же, зажигалка с надписью, становилась как машина с аерографией, и поэтому вероятность, что ее украдут ночью снижалась до минимума.

Вьетнамские умелые ручки, за небольшую сумму были готовы подсобить одиноким американским сынам, выброшенным на произвол судьбы. Умельцы начали предлагать американцам аккуратную гравировку на Zippo.

Собственно об этом я и хотел написать. О том, что Zippo в те годы преобразились. Солдаты, которые могли не вернуться, души которых направлялись то вверх, то вниз с постоянством, которому может позавидовать любой профессионал, оставляли на земле тело - решето, или просто отдельные куски плоти и Zippo, но зато свое.Zippo времен вьетнамской войны. Изображение № 1.

Некоторые надписи вызывают дрожжь. Например, простое и лаконичное: "Why me?" или менее простое и менее лаконичное "You only live twice once when you're born and once when you're looked death in the face".

Были надписи более забавные: "If God made anything better than pussy he kept it for himself" или еще одно проето и лаконичное "Lets Fuck".

Были и совсем прямолинейные: "He who steals this lighter eat shit".

Ниже я приведу сборник цитат с "мертвых зажигалок". Мертвы они потому, что те, кто выжил, забрали свою Zippo с собой. Те, что находили, находят в Вьетнаме до сих пор, уже не имеют хозяев.

Что до меня, то меня потрясли следующие надписи: "I love you for today tomorrow and forever", "knights slew for love we slay for money", "If you find this lighter on my body I hope it brings you better luck than me".

Вообщем, я не знаю, можно ли наслаждаться эстетикой смерти, но тем не менее, приятного чтения:


A big cat can be mean but ... A little pussy ! never hurt


After 7 days God say “Let there be hell” and then came the dusters


Always ripped or always stoned I made it a year I'm going home


Always topped or always stoned I made it a year I’m going home


And the lord said let there be marine and the fish rose from the sea


Army lifers never die they go to hell and regroup


As I steam down the river of death I'll fear nothing for I'm the meanest mother fucker on the river


As I walk through the valley shadow of death I shall fear no evil for I'm the evilest son of a bitch in the valley


Awarding! I'll be the first of all but fighting! I'm the soldier going the rear!

I'm sure to go to heaven because I have spent my time in hell


I've been down so goddamned long like up to me


I've been down so goddamned long that it looks to me


I've loved every inch of the land I stand I'll die before I'll run


If God made anything better than pussy he kept it for himself


If I die in Vietnam bury me on my stomach so the army can kiss my ass


If I had a farm in hell and a house in Vietnam I would sell them both


If I had a farm in Vietnam and a home in hell I'd sell my farm and go home


If I had been at Kent state there would have been one hell of a body count


If it won't light, that's combat baby


If there must be war let it be in my day so that my children can leave in peace


If You Can't Fix It Fuck It


If you don't know what hell is like fuck with me and you'll find out


If you find this lighter on my body I hope it brings you better luck than me


If you got this of my dead ass I hope it brings you the same luck it brought me


If you haven't been there shut the fuck up


If you think sex is exciting try incoming


If you want to fuck smile when lighter back


If you want to fuck smile when this lighter you hand me back


If you want to make love smile when you hand me back this lighter


If you want to make love smile when you hand me the lighter back


If you're not with the one you love love the one you're with


In life we often have to do things that just are not our bag


Is a year shortened as a day ? Then I'll go home soon !


It is nice to be important but it is more important to be nice


It seems the days in the army are the longest days on the earth


It's been a hard day I've been working like a dog


It's been a tough year


Kill them all,let God sort them out


Killing for peace was like fucking for virginity


knights slew for love we slay for money


Let me win your heart and mind or I'll burn your hut down


Let peace forever hold her way over the earth


Lets Fuck


Life's a bitch


Lifers Are the Same as Flies They Eat Shit And Won't Leave You Alone


Live by chance love by choice kill by profession


Live fast love hard die young


Live it up! We're all going to the hell anyway


Live like a dog work like an ass fuck like mink die like a rat


May I shack up with you tonight? If so keep this lighter and smile


Napalm sticks to Kids


Never again


Never put off tomorrow what you can do today


No drunk not allowed go home no wife but no single


no hope without dope no class without grass the whole world is going to pot


Nothing is dearer than the life but nothing is more precious than to live in freedom


Oh! lord don't let atomic bomb drop on me


On the 7th day, the lord rested, but blue life flew


One has never lived till he has almost died, life has a flavor the protected will never know


One thousand marines will shit today and wipe their ass with green beret


Ours is not to do or die ours is to smoke and stay high


Paratrooper's never die the go to hell and regroup


Peace is today and tomorrow is yesterday


Please don't tell me about Vietnam because I have been there


Return from hell


Screw it


Soon! I'll fail to buy a house but I won't refuse to build the church in Vietnam


The "things" to do today


The army is a rubber it gives you the feeling of security while you are getting fucked


The average GI. after a fat joint


The eagle fly high tonight


The hawk is out the eagle flies high tonight


The higher you go the lower you get in the army


The human brain functions 24 hours a day give it a break and get mellow


The marine corps is a festering pimple on the ass of my sanity


The more days you've been in the army the more hells you've gotten!


The object of war is not to give your life four your country but make the other bastard give his


The power never win the willing of the people


The quality of mercy is not strained


The unwilling working for the unable to do the unnecessary for the ungrateful


There is nothing so sweet as the smell of death in the morning


Things to do today


Those who have come close to dead – appreciate life


Though I walk through the valley of death I will fear no evil


To hell and back


To love each other is not to look at each other but to look together at the same aim


Vietnam is the land that God forgot but I’ve been there and I remember


War is hell


War is hell but actual combat is a son of a bitch


Water ? Never touch the stuff fish fuck in it you know


We are the unwilling led by the unqualified doing the unnecessary for the ungrateful


We came because we believe we leave because we are disillusioned we come back because we are lost we die because we are committed


We die at the hands of those who smile at war


We have done so much for so long with so little that now we can do any thing with nothing forever


When God open the gates of hell the 101 st walked out


When I am dead and in my grave no more pussy will I crave


When I die bury me face down so the whole world can kiss my as


When I die don't bury me at all just rub my nuts in alcohol lay my dick across my chest tell all Vietnam whore I'm gone to reste


When I die I know I am going to heaven because I have spent my time in hell


When I die I know I am going to heaven cause I spent my time in hell


When I die I'll go to heaven because I've spent my time in hell


When I die I'll drive the road of heaven because have driven road of hell


When I die put me deep place a woman at my head & feet tell all the whores


When I kill the only feeling have is the recon of my rifle


When I know I've already died I'll fear no war, no combat and no fighting because the God appears behind me!


When my drinking days are over and from this world I pass, I hope they bury me upside down so the world can kiss my ass


When the power of love over comes the love of power then There will be peace


When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace


When this trooper dies he will rot in the mud like any other fucking animal


When you are not with the one you love love the one you are with


With booze you loose with dope there is hope


Yea and my retribution shall be terrible and swift and death and sorrow rained from the sky


Yea though I fly through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil for I'm the evilest mother fucker in the valley


Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I fear no evil for I am most evil dog in the valley


Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I fear no evil for I'm the evilest son of a bitch in the valley


Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil cause I'm the meanest mother fucker in the valley


Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil for I am the evilest son of a bitch in the valley


Yesterday is history tomorrow is a mystery today is the golden age between


You can fuck with the troops but you can't stop the clock


You may fall on a hill you may fall on a mountain but the biggest fall you’ll ever make is when you fall in love


You must have me confused with someone who gives a shit


You never really lived till you nearly died


You never really lived until you've nearly died



You only live twice once when you're born and once when you're looked death in the face
