Promised Land

 

The assassination of Martin Luther King causes racial tension on the Base. Zeke, who accompanies the body of a friend – a black soldier killed in action—back to the States, encounters many of the same of the racial problems back there, as the brother of the dead soldier tells Zeke the family doesn’t want him to attend the funeral. Goldman works closely with a black lieutenant—Douglas – whose men hate him so much for his by the book discipline that they threaten to "frag" him.
