Here is some info from Wikipedia: Track 2's (no pivot) came out in 1971 and the first disposables, the Gillette Good News came out in 1976. So, the troops could have been using cartridges in Viet Nam but, I don't think they had disposables since the war ended in 1975.

He had been DE shaving for 40 years and the Track 2 was a new novelty for him. It's funny how DE's have become more fun for me to use than the Track 2 or the Sensor that I once used from 1975 to May of 2012.
