90% OF ALL GOVERNMENT VIETNAM MILITARY ISSUE
WATCHES WERE SINGLE  CASE.

THE BENRUS COMPANY WAS THE REASON. THE FIRST SPEC SHEET
WAS ISSUED IN 1962. THE ONLY COMPANY TO WIN A CONTRASCT
WAS BENRUS THEY SUBMITTED A SINGLE CASE SYSTEM WITH THE
GURANTEE REQUIRED BY MILITARY THAT EVERY TIME PIECE
WOULD LAST A MININUM 2 YEARS IN THE NAM W/NO SERVICE.
BENRUS WON A 10,400 UNIT CONTRACT FOR THE MARINES. BULOVA
ON THE OTHER HAND, CRIED FOUL BUT LOST AN APPEAL.

IMG_3679.JPG (146520 bytes)
The 7.6254mmR is the oldest cartridge still in regular combat
service with several major armed forces in the world. In 2011,
the cartridge reached 120 years in service. The 7.6254mmR
is currently (December 2013) mainly used in sniper rifles like
the  Dragunov sniper rifle and machine guns like the 

.30-06 Springfield cartridge
(7.6263 mm), with its
higher service pressure and case capacity, can outperform
the  7.6254mmR, especially when same-length test barrels are

used in this comparison .The 7.6254mmR's case capacity prevents
it from reaching the most powerful .30-06 loads, but even with this
limit, it has been used to successfully kill large bears . Because of
performance similar to the iconic American .30-06 cartridge, a
similarly rich military and historic heritage, and amazing longevity,
the 7.6254 mmR is nick named "the Russian .30-06" by some
. It is also one of
the few (along with the .22 Hornet, .30-30 Winchester, and .303
British) bottlenecked, rimmed centerfire rifle cartridges still in
common use today. Most of the bottleneck rimmed cartridges
of the late 1880s and 1890s fell into disuse by the end of the

First World War.

***
The Mayaguez incident took place between the Kingdom of Cambodia and the United States
from May 12–15, 1975, less than a month after the Khmer Rouge took control of the capital Phnom Penh
ousting the U.S. backed Khmer Republic. It was the last official battle of the Vietnam War. The names
of the Americans killed, as well as those of three U.S. Marines who were left behind on the island
of Koh Tang after the battle and were subsequently executed by the Khmer Rouge, are the last names
on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The merchant ship's crew, whose seizure at sea had prompted
the U.S. attack, had been released in good health, unknown to the U.S. Marines or the U.S. command
of the operation before they attacked. Nevertheless, the Marines boarded and recaptured the
ship anchored offshore a Cambodian island, finding it empty. It was the only known engagement
between U.S. ground forces and the Khmer Rouge.
