In Vietnam the army issue knife was the M7 bayonet still in service with some countries today. The Marines carried, as they have since World War II, the Ka-Bar USMC combat knife. This knife is still carried by current serving Marines and is readily available to civillians. The Navy SEALs carried the SOG bowie knife which was developed for them at the time and in fact stands for 'Studies and Observations Group" which the SEALs were. These knives were the issue knives but individuals of course carried there preferred knives into combat also. Hope this answers your question..
