Major Joe Loughran is remembered in the book 'LIMA-6: A Marine Company Commander in Vietnam' written by Colonel R. D. Camp with Eric Hammel. During the siege of Khe Sanh in 1968 Colonel Camp described Joe as ' a hell of a guy, a bluff, smiling Irishman with an Irish temper. Every day when we called it quits Joe pulled out a bottle of Irish whiskey and poured a small thimbleful of whiskey for each of us.' Rest in Peace Major.

His radio operator on May 2, 1968
I was Major Loughran's radio operator on May 2, the day that he was killed. I was standing right next to him when a booby trap was detonated. We were both medevac'd to Dong Ha where he died next to me in TRIAGE. I will never forget him. He was a Marine's Marine in every sense. He was a rock of stability for me and a true father figure as well. He will live in my heart forever. Semper Fi...
