  7. From Memorial Press: VOLUME I contains biographies of 414 Minnesota men. VOLUME II contains the stories of men from across the USA. (Both books are sold out.) "The Memorial Press is not a business. It is a one-man self-publishing endeavor by a former naval officer, historian/journalist, and graduate of the University of Minnesota who lost shipmates early in the Vietnam War. Don Ward felt a calling to report the family stories of the men killed in Vietnam. Quite simply, he felt compelled to put a face to the names etched in stone on the Memorial Wall."
         "Each participating family receives a copy of the book at no charge. Some of the expenses are off-set by sponsorship of books to local high school libraries by American Legion Posts, VFW Posts, Vietnam Veterans of America Chapters, other veterans' organizations, and concerned citizens and veterans."
         Note: The search continues for contacts and surviving family members for future volumes of "The Faces Behind the Names." Any help you can give is greatly appreciated!

This information is a "consolidation of the names of POW/MIA servicemen whose remains have been rejected, disputed, or rescinded since Homecoming, January 2, 1973~ due to inexcusable inconclusiveness that has prematurely closed their cases with little or no evidence of their deaths. The families of these men have been pressured and forced into reluctantly accepting human remains that cannot be or have not been irrefutably identified. In many cases, NO remains were repatriated, yet these servicemen are nonetheless considered to be "accounted for" solely on the grounds of Identification by Association."
