". . . But after weeks of preparation and now a day inside the Desert Storm mortuary, I'm beginning to think I could really embalm, if I had to. The chief mortician must be equally convinced as he summons me to his corpse. " 'Got your embalming license, Franklin? You can start this afternoon.' . . . "

Franklin poses as a mortician to gain entry to the mortuary for the dead soldiers of Operation Desert Storm, 1991.
