Former Army photographer Charlie Haughey shot nearly 2,000 photos during the Vietnam War, now released for the first time in 45 years.

Haughey served a tour of duty in Vietnam from March 1968 to May of 1969. He was commissioned by his commanding officer to take photos — not traditional combat photos, but morale-boosting content to uplift spirits of the members of the unit. When he left Vietnam for good, Haughey brought back to the United States almost 2,000 negatives that had captured his unique view on the war and life in the army. The negatives lay in boxes until the fall of 2012, when a chance meeting brought them out of dormancy.
