The War at Home (1996)

The War at Home is a 1996 drama directed by Emilio Estevez and written by James Duff (the creator of The Closer). Estevez stars in the film as a young Vietnam veteran who has difficulty adjusting to civilian life and his family, including his overbearing father (portrayed by Estevez's real-life father Martin Sheen). The War at Home marked the third feature film dealing with the Vietnam War that featured in the cast a member of the Sheen family (as his father Martin Sheen starred in 1979's Apocalypse Now and brother Charlie Sheen in 1986's Platoon).

The following weapons were used in the film The War at Home:

M16 Rifle

The M16 rifle is carried by US troops in Vietnam, including Jeremy Collier (Emilio Estevez).

The original M16, the first version, firing in a 20-round magazine, adopted in large numbers by the U.S. Army in Vietnam. It would later be replaced by the upgraded M16A1 - 5.56mm
