Tan Son Nhut air base, the base camp for the second season, is depicted as a relatively quiet location set amongst woods and hills.

TOUR OF DUTY, like Oliver Stone's PLATOON only a year before,
shows the emotional, social, and mental sides of the Vietnam War. In oppose to those larger than life war shows and movies (including THE A-TEAM or RAMBO II), the purpose of TOUR OF DUTY is to display how the young American troops felt and experience regarding the horrors of war, and they do a fine job at that. Terrance Knox and Stephen
Caffrey are fine as the leaders the platoon in subject.
