Ken Klose's Vietnam War Photography

See what Vietnam was like for Minnesota veteran Ken Klose through the lens of his own camera.
This piece originally aired February 16, 2012 on Lakeland Public Television's Common Ground.

That's where I bought what I would consider my first real camera and in the position I was in, I had a lot of free time and we used it partly to go out and photograph the Vietnamese countryside.

Look through Ken's camera roll:
