Hogan, 21, son of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Hogan of Fort Plain RD 3, died Feb. 17, 1968 of wounds suffered Jan. 31, 1968. ~ Fort Plain Sailor Dies Of Vietnam Battle Wounds Navy Hospitalman John B. Hogan, 21, son of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Hogan of Fort Plain RD 3, who lost both legs as the result of wounds suffered in the Vietnam fighting on Jan. 31, died Thursday at a U.S. Navy Hospital in the Philippine Islands. Hospitalman Hogan had been attached to the Third Marine Division when he was wounded while taking part in operations at Quang Tri near the Demilitarized Zone. He was first placed aboard the Hospital Ship U.S. Repose and then transferred to the Philippines and had been in critical condition since being wounded. The parents were notified last week that their son had been seriously wounded. A short time later they were told that it had been found necessary to amputate their son's right leg and still another report informed them that the other leg had to be amputated. Hogan joined the Navy on Jan. 11, 1966. He graduated from Fort Plain High School in 1964 and was employed by the General Electric Co. in Schenectady as an apprentice machinist before he enlisted in the Navy. Hospitalman Hogan was born in Little Falls on April 2, 1946. Besides his parents he is survived by a sister, Mrs. Linda Gould, whose husband is also stationed in Vietnam; his maternal grandmother, Mrs. Edna Dillenback, St. Johnsville, and his maternal great-grandmother, Mrs. George Stead, Gloversville. He was a member of the Fort Plain Baptist Church. Funeral arrangements will be handled by the Swartz funeral home of Fort Plain. The Fort Plain sailor was the 13th area serviceman to die in the Vietnam War since January of 1966 and the first announced Navy casualty.
