    Joseph Hughes was a superb Artillery Soldier serving in my Command of Charlie Battery, 3rd Bn 18th Field Artillery in Minh Long, Landing Zone Crunch in 1 Corps, Vietnam. Joe worked hard, often more than 15 hours per day for the entire year of 1969 -1970. As a diligent Cannoneer of the 8″ Howitzer Section, he was promoted to the grade of Corporal.

    Later in life, Joe was instrumental in organizing the Charlie Battery’s soldier’s reunions which were held in numerous places in the USA for the members and their wives.
    Joe and Rose were the primary advocates to these reunions from New York to Texas, Missouri, Michigan, Minnesota, South Carolina, Wisconsin and others. Various Members sponsored the reunion where the Soldiers and their wives could meet and have time to exchange their stories after returning from Vietnam and in the present time. His driving force and encouragement will be missed by all of us soldiers of Charlie Battery.
