Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Michael Gross plays Don Scott, the real-life protagonist of the 1990 TV movie Vestige of Honor It is Scott's mission in life to uphold the governmental assurances made to the Montagnards, a group of pro-US Vietnamese who'd been promised safe conduct to America after the war. But when Saigon fell, the Montagnards were left behind in a refugee camp supervised by a disgraced ex-Green Beret (Gerald McRaney). Forming an uneasy alliance with the military man, Scott battles the new Vietnamese government and an indifferent American bureaucracy in securing freedom for the Montagnards. Partially filmed in Bangkok, Vestige of Honor is well intentioned, but seems more interested in proselytizing than in stirring up emotional involvement in the story.
