ZIPPO LIGHTER USS MISSOURI TOKYO BAY
Zippo USS Missouri silhouette in Tokyo bay above the surrender seal : On September 2, 1945, in Tokyo Bay aboard the USS Missouri, the Instrument of Surrender was signed. General MacArthur concluded the ceremony by saying: “Let us pray that peace be now restored to the world, and that God will preserve it always. These proceeding are closed!” With those words, World War II was over. For those of our Greatest Generation, the significance of that moment coming after years of devastation and death could never be diminished or forgotten. It remains for us now to know and understand, to appreciate their service and sacrifice, and to always remember. Made in the USA Lighters just don't get any better than this. They don't blow out with the slightest puff of wind like cheap butane lighters. Don't smoke? They are great for barbecues, candles, campfires, and collecting.
