This series offers an unflinching look at the "tours of duty" of several members of a platoon during the Vietnam War. Death is inevitable in war, and major characters do die. The protagonists face the Viet Cong, social disapproval, and sometimes themselves over the course of the series. Written by

In all the episodes of 1st and 2nd season, quite a few characters (Taylor, Johnson, Purcell) wear helmets with chinstraps from 1970s. See more »
Private Danny Purcell:
[about a village that was massacred by another American platoon]
You guys just don't get it. We killed those people. Even if we weren't the ones who pulled the triggers, we did it! What if it was back home? What if those were your sisters, your brothers, your parents? When I think about it, I want to puke my guts out! But, I can't... I've been here too damn long.

WOW! I have been watching Tour of Duty for awhile. the series is awesome, realistic, and the actors are great. The soldiers in tour of duty are from all backgrounds: the rich, poor, black, white, dove, hawk, orphaned, etc. The actors (Knox, Caffrey, Becker, Franco, Nunez, Foster, Dye etc.) all did an excellent job portraying these characters. It is a shame that they never were given bigger roles.
Great series. Hope the actors show up on more movies and shows.
