Vietnam War: Lost and Found (part 1)

Charlie Haughey was drafted into the US Army in 1967, and served a tour of duty in Vietnam with the 25th Infantry Division 2nd Battalion 12th Infantry, as a rifleman. He was commissioned to be the new battalion photographer, and ended up shooting nearly 2000 photos over the course of 13 months. After returning home, he put the negatives in boxes, and didn’t return his attention to them for most of his life. In the fall of 2012, a chance encounter in Portland, Oregon, brought the negatives and the photo collection was digitized and cataloged.
