In 1996, we reviewed the book The Faces Behind the Names , by Don Ward. That book, and its second volume which came out in 2000, honored Minnesotans and others who perished in the Vietnam War with family-submitted bios, photos, and pictures. Ward, who published the books, sent free copies to family members and sold the rest to try and cover the costs of self-printing. We recently heard from Ward who told us that he had sold all of his copies, “put the project to rest, ” and moved to Thailand.
But Ward now tells us that he continues to get requests for the books, “but not enough to cover a re-print cost.” He would like to “honor these book requests, ” he says, but cannot afford the costs of reprinting unless he sells several hundred copies of the books.
