Wendell Redler is a Vietnam veteran, who many years ago made a pact with his Vietnam squad members that they'd be ready for an event such as the Eden's Gate takeover, and prepared for this event by stashing weapons and supplies in a shed in Wendell's front yard.
To keep the stash safe from any one man being able to steal it all, or one of them going rogue and taking it, they etched a single digit into their Vietnam Veteran lighters, with Wendell being the one to know the proper sequence of the dozen numbers.
Unfortunately, as the years have gone by, all of Wendell's friends have dropped, one by one, until he is the last man standing.
Wendell requests you find his friends' lighters, and bring them back before the cult finds them. As a reward, he will let you have the contents of the stash, as he knows you'd get better use out of it than he would.
