Maj. Kendall Laird:
February 23rd, 1972. We buried Lt. Johnson today. Finally. But his spirit feels very much alive here. In this town, his men and me. I came here as one kind of person and leaving as another. Together with his family and his men, I think we made a difference. I know Dwight Johnson did.

An enjoyable thought-provoking and entertaining TV drama
"Resting Place" tells of an Army officer (Lithgow) who accompanies the body of a black Vietnam war hero home for burial only to find the cemetery is segregated and the body is shrouded in mystery. A well cast journeyman TV drama, "Resting Place" is a thoughtful and poignant exploration of one man's search for truth among a too divided civilian population and a too unified military unit. Good stuff with a message for everyone.
