Charlie Haughey was drafted to the US Army in 1967.  After arriving in Vietnam in 1968, he served a tour of duty as a rifleman and was commissioned to take photos of the battalion for Army and civilian newspapers. These powerful images provide a unique and previously unseen view into the war and life in the U.S. Army. Haughey shot nearly 2,000 photos from March 1968 to May 1969, and put the negatives in boxes, where they lay dormant for 45 years. In the fall of 2012, a chance meeting brought the negatives out into the light, viewable for the first time in decades.

"A Weather Walked In," a collection of Haughey’s images, can be seen at ADX gallery in Portland, OR, USA, for the month of April. You can follow the progress of the project on the project website , and on Facebook.
