About Faces of the Fallen

Faces of the Fallen is a collection of information about each U.S. service member who has died as a result of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, in Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation New Dawn and Operation Enduring Freedom.

This information is updated at least weekly from military releases, news service reports and local newspaper stories. The photographs come from news services, local newspapers and family members. The Washington Post cannot give permission to allow for third-party use of the photos in Faces of the Fallen due to contractual agreements with other news organizations.

Zazzle Removes Offensive Valentine’s Day Products – Indian Country Today Media Network

Zazzle Removes Offensive Valentine’s Day Products – ICTMN.com – article by Vince Shilling

Now, I try not to get offended by anything – I really don’t. But racially insensitive stereotypes are troublesome. It’s 2014, and at least in America, we can do better. Scalping has a gruesome history, and so does St. Valentine’s Day (The Dark Origins Of Valentine’s Day) – so where is the line drawn?

I’m a Zazzle fan, and will remain so, and not because I have a store there. I support their business model, and I am so thankful they provide a platform and means to make gifts that I can’t manufacture otherwise. It’s genius. And I’m glad that racially insensitive items were removed from their marketplace once the material was brought to their attention. With millions of products, I’m sure it’s difficult to keep track of them all, but at the end of the day, I believe there was a “right thing to do”, and removing the old stereotyped images of yesteryear was a great idea.
