MADISON - For Peter Finnegan, photographing the Vietnam war for the U.S. Army was making the best of a tough situation. Finnegan, a 1966 graduate of Fennimore High School, volunteered for the draft in 1968, after flunking out of University of Wisconsin-Platteville. "I was there for the wrong reasons," he said, and because he was no longer in college, he lost his deferment.
