A Soldier's Story: Rare Images of Vietnam War
Pulled this off of Yahoo.
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.
Full gallery with captions is here.
All photo credit goes to Charlie Haughey. Find more images here.

when the two photographers were approached by the "sucky sucky $5" lady
then robbed by the guy on the motorcycle

Traded guns for cameras
Very cool. I'm always impressed by these sorts of stories and what they were able to pull off with just film and manual focus.
