Their Tour Is Just Beginning...
The first TV series about the Vietnam War, Tour of Duty focuses on a single platoon of young U.S. soldiers during their one-year tour of combat duty in Vietnam during the late 1960s.
Terence Knox, Stephen Caffrey, Joshua Maurer, Steve Akahoshi, Tony Becker, Eric Bruskotter, Stan Foster, Ramon Franco, Miguel A. Nunez, Jr. and Kevin Conroy star as the infantrymen who represent diverse racial, cultural and philosophical backgrounds that must ultimately depend on one another to face enemy troops and survive in the hostile Southeast Asian terrain.
Full of thrilling combat action, Tour of Duty also goes deeper to portray the dramatic human side of war and the camaraderie of the men who gave their all for their country.
Guest Stars: William Sadler (The Shawshank Redemption), Tia Carrere (True Lies), William Russ (American History X), Mako (Pearl Harbor), Tamlyn Tomita (The Day After Tomorrow), James Hong (Blade Runner), Ving Rhames (Pulp Fiction), Robert Knepper (TV's Prison Break), Tim Thomerson (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas), Pamela Gidley (Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me), Clyde Jones (Coming To America), Talia Balsam (No Strings Attached), Olivia d'Abo (TV's The Wonder Years), David Alan Grier (TV's In Living Color), Robert Fuller (TV's Emergency), Rosalind Chao (What Dreams May Come), Jon Cypher (TV's Santa Barbara), Marshall Bell (Total Recall), Glenn Plummer (Speed), Keone Young (Men In Black 3), Everett McGill (Quest For Fire), and Clyde Kusatsu (American Pie).
Mill Creek Entertainment has more fruit to offer from the tree of their deal with Sony last summer to re-release many TV-DVD titles which Sony (or other studios) had previously made available on DVD. MCE's latest-scheduled offering is from ten years ago, when Sony Pictures Home Entertainment still went under their old label, Columbia Tristar. It's Tour of Duty - Season 1, on 4 DVDs for just $14.98 SRP. It will be available in stores on September 16th.
Package art is below, along with a button link to pre-order the title from Amazon.com (assuming you don't already own the old release, of course):
