of knowingly and willfully exporting from the United States a set of 
AN/AVS-6 night vision goggles, which is designated as a defense article 
on the United States Munitions List, without having first obtained from 
the Department of State a license for such export. Kraegel was 
sentenced to eight months of prison, to run concurrent with the 
sentence imposed in the United States District Court for the District
