That would depend on the proximity to attack. There were baseball games and basketball games at most rear areas. They had those at points as far north as Khe Sanh, Camp Carrol and Dong Ha. (When there was no percieved threat, but everyone knew where the nearest trench was located,) At the Rockpile, Con Thien. Cam Lo or Gio Linh the closest you came to a game was a quick game of bridge or poker or maybe a crap game. Laugh if you want to, they even played "jacks". In locations like these the bunker was home and the trench was only used to get from place to place.

Jay Leno is certainly in the age group that served in the Vietnam War. He may have had a brother that served in Vietnam; if so, Jay was "relatively" safe from serving in Vietnam. Similiar to actor Chuck Norris, although Mr. Norris did serve in the USAF during those times; unfortunately his brother was KIA while serving with the 101st Abn (Ambl) in Vietnam in 1970.
