Zippo Lighters

I am a collector of zippo lighters from the Vietnam war. Occasionally I will get one with a name on it and always try and return it to the family. I have one that has Robert Youngs' name on it and I would love to get it to the family if anyone can assist here it would be appreciated. God Bless the family!

In remembrance.

I wore Robert M. Young's MIA bracelet for years. His date of missing in action is the day my wife and I married, so his memory has extra meaning. My warmest wishes to his family. Thanks for his service.
