throughout the years, have boosted morale and inspired thoughts of
home in times of war and peace.

This beauty queen calls "The
Windy City" of Chicago home. Joan's classic features and
regal bearing have won her titles like Miss Steady Flame. More
than merely glamourous, this American Beauty is a wholesome lass
with traditional values. Depeddability, quality, and a lifetime
commiment are what Joan looks for in a man - and in her Zippo
windproof lighter. Her Zippo lighter perfectly complements her
"Flaming Beauty" designer dress, making her the ideal
date for the New Year and beyond.
