Noticed the milspec M3 is for use with night vision.  Was wondering whether the shooter utilizes his PVS-7 goggles, or is there supposed to be a seperate weapon mounted NV tube to the rear of the M3?

Basically they'll work with any NV so long as you are able to look through the tube.  Putting a NV monocular on the weapon behind the Aimpoint is the easiest way to see through the optic, but it means that you can't use the NV without pointing the weapon at whatever you're looking at.

Since I've never used a NVG, I was wondering if sighting a rifle with one would work very well.  Seems like it would be a bit difficult to get the goggle to line up with the sight.  On the other hand, having to switch from goggles to a weapon mounted NV monocular would seem difficult as well.

Seen a lot of M4s with Aimpoints mounted on them in the news.  Just wondered how the soldiers were using them at night.
