Heavy Lifting, Vietnam Style

A Chinook rescues a downed Huey from a rice paddy, Vietnam, January 1969 (Charlie Haughey)

These amazing photographs and more were taken by Army photographer Charlie Haughey, who recently rediscovered 2,400 photographs he took in Vietnam.

They represent some of the finest black and white photographs I have seen of the Vietnam War.

A lot of the photographs I saw were shot in and around Dau Tieng, and FSB Pershing, where one of the contributors to this site, Arnold Krause, was also based, and where he was tangling with the Viet Cong at around the same time – http://peteralanlloyd.com/the-vietnam-war/a-firefight-with-the-viet-cong/

Our new film, M.I.A. A Greater Evil. Set in the jungles of Laos and Vietnam, the film deals with the possible fate of US servicemen left behind after the US pulled out of the Vietnam War.
