Tour of Duty

The men who served in Vietnam fought in a war without front lines, one where action came quickly and unexpectedly. They fought in the rice paddies, in the air, in the cities, and along the rivers of Vietnam. They came from many backgrounds and nationalities, all wanting to serve their country. Together, their combat experiences formed a story, one they would take with them, one that would forever represent their "Tour of Duty."
