Tour Of Duty.
In the tradition of PLATOON..a story of men
fighting for their country--and each
other. Vietnam, 1967.They came from all over
the nation, for all different reasons. But the soldiers of Firebase Ladybird had
one thing in common: their friendship, forged under fire. Some gave of
themselves; others gave their lives. They were heroes, because they had to be:
ANDERSON (Terence Knox), the war-weary platoon sergeant who never lost his
spirit; GOLDMAN (Stephen Caffrey) , the green lieutenant with something to
prove; HORN (Joshua Maurer), a war protester, forced to fight in spite of himself:
RUIZ (Ramon Franco) , a new recruit who has already seen battle........on the
streets of the Bronx.
Anderson leads his new platoon on a hazardous mission to destroy a hidden NVA
headquarters. Outnumbered and outgunned, their initiation into the deadly reality
of jungle combat is harrowing....and their chances for survival , uncertain.
Running time 93 minutes.

Tour Of Duty 2 --Bravo Company
They came from the backwoods of Georgia
and the urban sprawl of the northeast. They were farmboys from Iowa, surfers from
California, and teenagers from Anytown, USA. America was in for a sobering slice
of humblepie, and these babyboomers where the tasters.
Welcome to Vietnam, 1967. A million miles from home with no return ticket and no
free rides. Only the heat, the sweat, and an ugly reality staring you in the
face...daily. A tropical slow-burn where the trees have eyes, bushes kill, and
any false step could be your last. Under conditions like these, your platoon is
family - your father, mother, guardian, saviour, and your worst enemy - all
wrapped up into one mud-splattered package.
Fighting machine AND target. A cohesive unit AND a pack of
feuding dogs. Teenagers playing a grown man's game. Where the object is not so
much winning as it is merely surviving.
Running time 97 minutes
Tour Of Duty 2 --Bravo Company......The adventure continues
Features the episodes Pushing to Hard and Under Siege
Tour Of Duty 3 --The Hill
Meet the grunts of Bravo Company. Mere boys living in a twilight zone between R
& R and the Ho Chi Minh Trail, between a body bag and a ticket home. They
were just teenagers playing a grown man's game - where the object was not so
much winning as it was merely surviving.
This is their story. The story of a platoon lieutenant, a young nurse - and the
daily firefights that push them to snapping point. Of a North Vietnamse Colonel
who exposes not only an all-out offensive, but also a traitor in their midst. Of
a young infantryman at war with himself and the chain of command. Of the deep
emotional wounds that no field hospital can treat. And of the bloody fight waged
for "The Hill" which comes to symbolize the very futility of the war
Both searing and touching, brutal and personal, "The
Hill" is a look at the lives of a few brave men who came, who saw.....and
