A Soldier's Eye: Rediscovered Photos From Vietnam

Apr 29, 2013

Charlie Haughey returned home from Vietnam with almost 2,000 photo negatives of his fellow soldiers.  He put them in a box and left them there for 45 years, untouched, until a friend encouraged him to digitize them.

In this edition of The Story, Charlie says seeing them brings back the war, and "things I did not take pictures of. And there are some that are, to me, just the scariest pictures in the world."
