Vietnam vets/martial arts movie title?
 
This movie was all over cable some years ago. Vietnam vet who was in charge of a special squad in Nam is now a cop or something. The squad went on a special mission back during the war. Now years later someone is killing them off. Turns out the South Vietnamese guide(or whatever) who was helping them got captured during the raid and is now getting revenge for being left behind. End of movie has confrontation between the cop and the killer in a city park. It's pretty well known just can't think of the name or who was in it.

Be funny if it is. I've had the dvd for quite a while but never cracked the shrinkwrap. Have to check it out to see. I was thinking it was a newer movie, mid-late 80s.

Well, sounds more like Good Guys Wear Black.

It probably is Good Guys Wear Black. Chuck Norris ex-Vietnam movies all run together for me.

It's neither of the Chuck Norris movies. I know it's not Good Guys Wear Black and I stuck in Force Of One, which has same plot and fight in park, but villian is white and no 'Nam flashback.
This one has a flashback to Nam showing the American special team attacking a Viet Cong compound. In the attack their South Vietnamese guide/helper is captured. The guide looks back at them with a pleading look as they withdraw leaving him behind. The fight in the park at the end has police helicopters overhead shining spotlights down on the star and Vietnamese guy as they fight. The asian actor who is the killer is fairly young and in other films too. One of those "know the face , not the name". In some other cop movie he is the partner of the star who plays a cop.

This sounds like the plot of Peter Straub's Koko (one member of a Vietnam War unit is now a serial killer, confrontation between killer and squadmates in a park), with a lot of details changed.
