It was good meeting you today on the airplane. Encase you don't remember me I am a basketball player from the College of Idaho and I sat next to you. You seem like a great person. I just think it is funny that with all the people we encounter on a given day we never truly know who they are. Anyways I just wanted to say hello and tell you that I appreciate the cinnamon gummy bears you shared with me. Take care
Cheers from your number 1 aussie fan

Hi Sgt. Zeke!I want to let you know that I discovered Tour of Duty in 1991, when I was thirty years old. Since then, I've never seen it again in the Argentinian Televison, so I had to download it from internet.I really hope to see you again here. You are one of the best actors I've never seen and that's really true. I send you my congratulations for all your job.
Name: Jake Cray
I've bought and watched the Tour of Duty series. It is the most realistic TV show about the Vietnam War it is right on the money. Mr. Knox you did a outstanding acting job along with the other actors on the series. Hope to see you in other feature TV shows and movies. Have Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

Recently picked up all 3 seasons of "Tour Of Duty, boxset." Best war series since," Combat." Zeke and Vic would of hit it off. Good luck with the movie in France. Parlez-vous francais?
I grew up watching Tour of Duty with my mom, it was her favorite show & mine, when I was a kid. I just think you're absolutely awesome. I just purchased her Christmas gift, the complete set of Tour of Duty DVDs and am so excited to see her face when we watch it. My brother and I used to play Tour of Duty (dressed up in fatigues, the whole bit). He always played Zeke and I played LT. Anyway, hope you have an enjoyable holiday season, and just remember that there's a now-grown girl with very happy memories of you!!!
Name: Rod the Bod
Hello Terry. The wife looked you up and turned the site over to me. Keep hoping you'll turn up in a new series. Watch my ToD box set from time to time. Still good stuff. Hi to David and glad to see you are happy and well.
Hi "Sgt Zeke". When I was young, watched your tour of duty and loved it. Because the serie, today I am 2º Sgt in a jungle batalion of Brazil Army. I always talk with my soldiers like Sgt Zeke did it. It's bad that Tour of Duty is not to sel in portuguese.
Name: Amanda Spittle
I've recently discovered Tour Of Duty reruns on FX and I am totally hooked again! As a 19 year old I used to tune in every week and Zeke was definiately the best character by far. He still is all these years later ;) You're a great actor and I wish you all the best for the future
My mother and I were hooked on Tour Of Duty when it was on in the 80's. I always talked about the show and was thrilled to find the DVD's! My husband had never heard of the show and now he's a huge fan too. Such a well written show with an amazing cast. But you're the star-no one is better than Sarge!!!
Thank you for being part of my favorite show and being my favorite character.
Name: Maarten van Bemmel
Hey Terry. I just recently started to watch all the Tour of Duty series again. Must say you were and still are my favorite. Don't see you on the big screen too often though, are you doing other things besides acting nowadays? Greetings from Holland!
Name: Scott Clark
Loved TOD and really found the characters easy to like and cheer for. You were great as Sarge. I was in high school when the show was on and all my friends and I used to talk about the show at lunch the day after the episode aired. Great memories and I catch the odd episode in reruns from time to time.
all i need to say is that u r the greatest T, i still remember when i was a little child and i watch every week tour of dury back in argentina, u are a great actor, hope u get this, thanks
Name: SAMUEL J. WORSHAM
I am a big fan of yours and "Tour Of Duty". I hope your next movie with Tony Becker is a big hit. I will pay to see it. I just can't see you and Tony as "bad guys" in this movie after watching "Tour Of Duty" every Saturday Night.

Hello there Mr. Terry. Greetings from Malaysia. Love your show on Tours of Duty. But more importantly, hope you are good in health and happiness. Take care, and know this that you're a good actor.
Name: Sue Atkins
Have been watching the reruns of Tour of Duty on Channel FX via Sky TV. Remember watching on the original showing and am enjoying it just as much again. I just wish Series 1,2&3 would be released for Region 2 fans. Would love that in my collection :D
Think you are great:):)
Name: Norman E. Worsley II, M.D.
I have not seen Tour of Duty, but I am a great fan of your work in St. Elsewhere. Being a physician myself, I was stunned by the quality of the writing/acting on the show. I still enjoy watching season 1 over and over. Unfortunately it is the only season released so far!
Name: Mike Aldrich
About every two years or so, I pull out my Tour of Duty, Seasons 1-3. Wish there were more.
Wife and I just finished a marathon of watching. As a vet, I still love the job that was done with that show.
Best of Luck,
Name: John Thompson
I really enjoyed TOD when it was prime time way back when. I just picked up the 3 season DVD set and am enjoying it all over again. You really make the show. Thanks
I think your work on Tour of Duty inspired a whole generation of soldiers. We watched it in the 80's and served in the 90's. Some of the best NCO's I knew said they were just doing it like Zeke.
Thnx for your great roll in T.O.D im a treu fan of the serie,

I just wasnted to say i always enjoyed the Tour Of Duty episodes and wante to say thank you for doing such a good job.
Just wanted to say hey to a fellow Tri-Citian. Hot here these days, 109 today. Do you keep in touch with any fellow Bombers? Do you get home much?
Hi. I remember Tour of Duty from my teens. I thought you were the best, and I recall you being in The Twilight Zone and when you were on Pat Sajak's show. Great to know you're still active.
Name: Cheryl Osborne
I wanted to say what a true pleasure it was to meet you at my Dad Warren's 196th LIB Reunion in Buffalo! My son was the one in the blue hat, and he just thought you were great! Your speech was beyond amazing and I know all of the guys truly appreciated your heartfelt words. I hope you and Dave enjoyed yourselves as much as we enjoyed you both! We hope to see you at the next reunion in 2011 in Seattle! You will forever be one of the guys! Thanks again, Cheryl
Name: Woody Glaudel
I want to thank you for being at our reunion in Buffalo (I was the tall red haired guy who spoke with you during our picture session and you thanked me at breakfast on Sunday for talking with you. When Tour of Duty aired I tried not to miss an episode. As I told you, I was amazed to see our unit patch on your sleeve. Such a small unit. We weren’t the CAV or Big Red One or the Tropical Lightning (25th) but we did our job and took our hits (I took a bullet through my chest and out the back during Operation Juntion City on 25 Feb. 67).
I know that you were proud to attend the reunion and as a CHARGER, B/4/31, I was personally honored that you were there and spoke such heartfelt comments. If you ever get to Phoenix my wife and I would be honored if you would allow us to take you and your guest to dinner. You made the 196th proud...prouder! Thank you.

I first saw you in a movie called Rebel Love. I picked it up because I enjoy Civil War era movies.

My husband (a Vietnam Vet) just discovered Tour of Duty and now we're both hooked on it thanks to you, the guys and Netfliks.
Hi Terry, this is a great site, thanks. My favourite is TOD, I'm watching on DVD. Love Zek as a character, so true, loyal, honest.... in a crazy war...
Name: Kevin Burke
It was great traveling with you on the train to Seattle last week. Hope you had a GREAT trip, found the Starbucks at the train station, and a fabulous encounter with your friend. Thanks for sharing so many great stories. It would be cool to stay in touch.
Name: Scott Seketa
Enjoyed Tour of Duty. One of the best shows of the day. I have one question. Have you ever visted the Florida Gulf Coast?:)
Hey Terry, your character was surely the glue to TOD. I feel like the show honored those who served in Vietnam. Today our country is much more supportive of those who go to war, but, the Vietnam vets still don't get the appreciation and compassion they deserve. Sorry i missed the mini convention in '07 my wife just watched and finished it this month!

i loved the kind of movies you have been acting especially tour of duty was the best.am a man terence respond God loves you so much.
Hello Mr. Knox:
I am watching Tour of Duty on DVD. It's the first time I am seeing it since it was on. I was a younger guy then of course. I always liked the show. Since that time, I attended the US Naval Academy and served in the military. I never had to go to war but I certainly understand the breadth of characters in the show. I can appreciate your work that much more.
Thanks for such a great show. I wish you continued success.
Had the prividledge of watching you film Tour of Duty in Hawaii as a newly married Air Force wife. You and the cast were such a wonderful example of good actors and people. They do not make shows like that anymore or very few. Just wanted to tell you we will always remember how friendly you were and never made us feel rushed. we have enjoyed catching you in movies and other television shows. You are one of the good guys, hope your life has been blessed. You made two people feel very special almost 20 years ago and touched our lives with your kindness.:)
Will you do a autograph appearence on the east coast tdog? That would be fat! Yo da man! Saw Miguel Rockin Nunez at a signing and he was mad dope! Very cool dude! Hopefully u can do some autograph appearences! Peace out home boy!

I loved TOD when it was on way back when and I love watching the repeats now. You played the role of Zeke brilliantly and it is never forgotten. Great sense of humour as well. It is clear that you all became great friends too. Many Thanks:D
Name: Leland Burroughs
I was a young boy when Tour of Duty was on. I grew up in rural Alabama where there wasn't much to do but romp around in the woods. Many hours we spent shooting at each other with paintball guns while fiercely staying in character of whichever T.O.D cast member we were supposed to be. "Zeke" was almost everyone's 1st pick and always involved some sort of competition and then a complex rotation to see who had the honor being the great SGT. Zeke Anderson in our next battle. You were a positive inspiration to our young impressionable minds. I recently picked up all 3 seasons of T.O.D on dvd and have enjoyed them as much as I did 20 years ago. While the show was well written and with the exception of Stan Foster's acting I thought every character was excellent but I couldn't imagine the show with ot you.
:) hey man dave here from the uk. Thanks for tod, beautiful series. Well acted and written vietnam was a hard n lonely time on both sides but i believe we can learn from it. The cast ' missed them emmensly. N id follow sgt anderson anywhere. Terry good health n prosperity david x
Name: Jenny Martens
Hi Terry, don't forget there are many ladies out there that would love to spend just a few hours with you, including me. Hope to meet you in the future, that would be great! Jen:)
TOD was and still is quality tv. Sitting here watching repeats on FX. I think this is the first episode where you recruit Purcell and the others which i have never seen. Every1 looks so young. LT looks like he should still be in nappies.
Long have I admired all the actors in Tour of Duty but surffice to say Terry Knox is there amongst the big boys with great iconic status....
Name: Becca B
Also, just wanted to let you know that down here in SoFla, the sun shines warmly on energetically wagging tails. :) You won't have to work so hard at it in the Fl sun!
Thanks for your wonderful performances. It's always a pleasure to watch you work. Keep it up!
Name: mike fatt
I just wanted to say how much I loved your character and Tour Of Duty itself.Your character was an inspiration to me and basically got me through high school. It told me that no matter what happens in life you just got to keep on -keeping on.God Bless
I loved the TOUR OF DUTY show very much and of coz Terry's performance was perfect:D
Really enjoying repaets of Tour of Duty here in the UK. Still annoyed that it never got the chance to tell it's tale to the end.
I love this show. I watched it when it first came out and I have all three seasons of the DVD and watch it all the time now. As a matter of fact it is playing as I am typing this. Love that Zek. They were all good but he is the man.:)
I'm 28 old.

I stumbled across this site today, which brought back memories. In my junior high school summer of 1976 I worked with the Portland State University Coaster theater in Cannon Beach Oregon along with you (terry). It was a great summer and I was very happy for you when I was watching st elsewhere and firt saw you. I enjoyed both shows very much and am glad you ended up doing what you wanted. Remember your scooter? Take care

Name: Dave Barrett
have to say terry you are one of the most committed actors i have ever seen and you have a real likeability on screen that makes me watch tour of duty over and over :)
you are the greatest inspiration.
Name: Patrik Dalton
;) Hey!! Just wanted to say thanks for Tour of Duty - its being reshown on FX channel,its good to see some of the 'tongue in cheek' themes with the underlying message carried through each episode.Its obvious that you guys enjoyed yourselves making it,its a tribute to you and all the cast,Thanks again,Patrik.
Hi Terry, much admired your role in TOD I served in South East Asia with 42commando Royal Marines so I can 'relate' and it realy was as hard as you and the rest made it look! Still wake at night from the memories!!I'm 65 years old in two weeks, hope the years have been good to you, cheers mate!
Twenty years ago while living in the US I loved watching Tour of Duty. A week ago I was able to buy the DVD boxes (all three seasons) and I got my 17year old son hooked up to the show immediately. We experienced the same as Lynn and her husband below (with the music too.) I think that this is the ONLY serie I ever watched. It shows the tragic of the Vietnam War, but also there is a sense of humor and especially comradeship. We think, you actors just did a wonderful job, the faces sometimes tell so much. I can’t believe that you guys were not real soldiers. You fooled me!
Even my sons english had improved a lot since we started watching the serie. It is a good combination of everything and I loved your character, I think back then I had a crush on the Lt. I’m sorry to say, but I haven’t seen any other shows or movies of you. But I’m glad to thank you after all these years for all the hours of great entertainment. You are a fantastic actor!! THANK YOU!!

I wanted Terry to know of how impressed I have been by the sincerity of his acting and the way he exudes total commitment to whatever part he plays. He is a star in my book by any means of reckoning the word. :D
Just received the complete series ToD a week ago, feels like the tv hasn’t been turned off since then. I stayed home every week to watch every episode in my younger years. Even with all the High definition stuff going on, the series still look good, and got that real Vietnam dirt glance over it. I am experiencing the same old feelings I had as a young boy watching you as Zeke, one of the most believable and honourable characters of the set! Great website to honor a great guy! Keep it up. ;)
just like to say ur a great actor and i searched for ur name cause i watched u in children of the corn 2 (which I now watch all the time since I first saw 2 weeks ago)anyway im gonna try and watch tour of duty bein as though people on this site recommended it laters mate
alright mate just like to say your wicked in children of the corn 2 your a cool dad and great actor hope to see you on another show laters duff
Terry, thanks to you and your whole crew for an absolutely BRILLIANT show. ToD used to air here late night and we could never understand why. It had no bad language, no gratuitous violence, and was so utterly riveting in its portrayal of the war in Vietnam and the guys you all played. I just rediscovered ToD on the cable FX channel and am delighted! I never did see the first few episodes so no idea how the series started, but am enjoying it all over again. Also, I commend you for taking on the St. Elsewhere role and the way you handled that. You are a fine actor, and I really miss you and Goldman and the rest of the gang. I wish they would remake ToD with you guys in the same roles...that would be beyond awesome and make for much better viewing than a lot of the stuff on TV these days. Thank you for your professionalism, and talent. And for being a part of ToD. Please say Hi from the UK to the guys when next you meet up. You take care!
I definitely remember you growing up playing zeke on tour of duty. My twin sister and I use to “play army” and I was always you. After we grew up in 2003 I joined the army and my twin in 1999. I guess you were one of the inspirations for me wanting to be in the military when I got older. God Bless.

Hi Terry...Our daughter got us the boxed DVD set of Tour of Duty for Christmas. What a gift! We have used every spare minute to sit down and watch. Some days, we will watch 3 or 4 episodes. We were MAJOR fans when the Series was on and were thrilled to see it avialable on DVD. Best gift we ever received. Our only disappointment is the sucky music. They really should have paid for the rights to the REAL music of that era. Oh well, I do notice once I start watching, I forget about the music anyhow. Viet Nam was our era and my husband served in the Army. What memories that show brings back for him. It was GREAT show and I truly hope you are proud of the work you did on it. When I watch, I can never take my eyes off you. Not sure if it’s your acting or just the fact that you are sooooo gorgeous. Maybe both? :D Either way, it’s a fabulous Series and we are proud to own it. Everyone on it were wonderful, but you shined Baby, you shined. Thanks for the great memories. Only thing that could top it? An autographed photo?

I bought my dad the complete season of tour of duty this past christmas as i kn ew he would be completely tickledt death. You see, he’s a vietnam vet and when i was a teenager we would watch this show together. you were both our favorite actor. I remember how he would always say how closely you guys got to capturing what really happen except with a lot less cursing lol. Well, the deal was (yes i made a deal over a christmas present hahaha) when he got done with them I got them, he finished all three seasons in 11 days. Im almost done with the first season now and its funny how I still remember everyone of them so far. just wanted to tell you thank you for the fond memories your acting has let me relive of my dad and me. :)

WE are the same age and I was in Vietnam in 1966. Tour of Duty is my favorite TV Series and Hawaii Five O. I truly believe you loved your work on TOD with you cast. My wife and I and our two boys lived and worked in Montego Bay, Jamaica and when we came back home to Florida we watched every episode of the 3 seasons. Now we have the complete set. I now work with the troops coming back from Iraq as a Mental Health Specialist at Ft. Stewart, Georgia. From my past experiences, I believe I can help some of our young boys like you did in TOD. You were “Always” an encourager. Thanks for being an excellent actor along with your great cast of TOD.

I think Zeke is a verry nice and good men and you play him verry verry well. I like to see how you go for your idea’s. Great Terry thanks.

Thank you for such a wonderful performance during the TV Series “Tour of Duty.“ I remember being a kid and sneaking down from my room to watch from the stairway banister as my father watched the show. Occasionally, I would get a front row seat from a couch. Thanks for the memories. Best wishes for the future.
