MAKE MUD, NOT WAR:   A 1st Air Cavalry Division trooper uses his poncho to shield himself from a driving monsoon rain as his buddies huddle in a tent in June 1970. Though there was never a shortage of rain or mud in Vietnam during monsoon season, the Pentagon sought to further muck things up along the Ho Chi Minh Trail through a series of weather manipulation and mud-making experiments beginning in 1966.   [On the cover]


FOR EVERY FACE, A NAME: A years-long effort finds photographs for every name on The Wall.      




PRIDE AND PURPOSE: Mission-minded Baltimore Chapter 451 in the public eye.
