Hello, comrades!
I have tried to find some information about using the M14A1/M14E2 in wars or conflicts, but I've found nothing except it's duty in Vietnam. But i don't believe that it was in use only in Vietnam.
Can you help me please with giving more information about M14A1/M14E2 duty?

To my knowledge, only used during the early (1965-1967) period of the Vietnam War.

The M14/M14A1 was removed from Standard A issue status circa 1970 in the US Army. Prior to that, Vietnam got the M16 series, Korea, Europe, CONUS got the M14. After that, M16 got the nod (to the ire of our NATO allies).

In two tours in Iraq, I never saw an M14A1 in use. All the M14s I saw had GI walnut or synthetic stocks, OR outfitted in say a SAGE stock. The 2-82nd ABN BCT I was a member of in 2011 during OND had M14s with those previously described stocks.

We had none in 2003 when I went with 3ID for the invasion.
