Vietnam Era Zippo Lighter

While attending another great Veteran's Day celebration here at our RV park in Mesa, AZ. yesterday, I was talking with a fellow veteran and he relayed a story to me of his finding a Zippo lighter in Viet Nam in 1970. Here is his info regarding the lighter:

Vietnam Era

Found this lighter in 1970 somewhere around Nha Trang or Hon Tre. Carried it for 30 years until I quit smoking. It would be wonderful to reunite with the owner. Anyone know a H.E.F. that was in Vietnam?

I have attached a photo of the front with the initials H.E.F. on it. The reverse side also has some data and hopefully someone will recognize this item and relate what data is on the reverse side. The owner can contact me and I will put them in touch with the individual who has that lighter. Hopefully it will be returned to the original owner.

Thanks, Semper Fi and Happy Birthday Marines!
