Anyone know what year the BAR was last placed into the hands of any US service man in any branch of the armed services? I have seen pics of Green Berets in Nam with them supposedly dated from 1967.

My Naval Science Instructor, a Marine Corps Captain who got a field commission in Vietnam, said that there was one fight he was involved in in which he used a BAR. He did, however, mention that it was ARVN property.

:D I joined the Army in late 1962, We still used the M-1 in Basic but in my first Unit( the 82nd Abn Div.) the BAR and M-1 was already gone, replaced by the M-14 and M-60! ;)
