Huntsville fire chief’s son killed in Iraq

HUNTSVILLE (AP) — Marine Lance Cpl. Adam Loggins, son of Huntsville Fire Chief Danny Loggins, was killed while serving in Iraq.

The Loggins family was notified Thursday of the death and asked that no details be released, said Sgt. Orliss Moss, a casualty assistance officer in Huntsville.

Adam Loggins, 23, was with the 3rd Battalion, 6th Marines. WAFF-TV reported that Loggins was serving in Fallujah, and WHNT-TV reported that he was shot by a sniper.

Their father was a district fire chief for 22 years before Mayor Loretta Spencer tapped him recently to become fire chief.

The mayor has ordered flags at city buildings flown at half-staff in recognition of the slain Marine.
