I worked with a guy that was in the invasion of Cambodia. He always carried extra frags. At night they would camp off the trail and set up Claymore mines along the trail.

One night an NVA patrol came past. The guy on the switch for the Claymores was asleep. So he just started throwing frags. He was awarded a South Vietnamese medal for killing Communists, but he never picked it up.
