Timothy J. McBride
Tim served in Vietnam with the 2/8 Infantry (Scout Platoon, Flame Platoon) in 1969-1970. After 40+ years, he is slowly becoming more comfortable with sharing his stories. Called “Zippo” in Nam due to his Flame Thrower expertise with both the Back Pack and Mechanized Flame Throwers, Tim was a machine gunner with the Scout Platoon unless needed by another unit for my ‘zippo’ expertise.
A Disabled Veteran, Tim works to provide Military honors for all our Veterans and Fallen Soldiers. He maintains a website, http://vfw12062.org, on which his ‘Military Support’ and information site is included.
