TV Fact #219 – May 31st, 2015:

While several of the story lines and even some of the dialog for “China Beach” (1988-1991) were taken directly from the experiences and recollections of actual Vietnam era military nurses, actor Troy Evans, who played the character Master Sergeant Bob Pepper for seasons 3 and 4, was actually a Vietnam veteran himself.

During a reunion on Good Morning America he even stated the show gave him a sense of closure. Peace is never impossible to find…but sometimes you have to face your demons to put it all to rest. For Evans that meant jumping back into the boots of his past horrors…and he won.
