A Soldier's Eye: Rediscovered Photos From Vietnam

A portrait of Charlie Haughey

Charlie Haughey returned home from Vietnam with almost 2000 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. 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."

Also in this show: At 91 years old, Henry Stone is still at work as a record producer. He remembers producing one of Ray Charles' earliest recordings, and hand-selling early R&B albums to train porters and in barbershops.
