He wasn't a regular military general, he was Chief of the National Police who liked to lead from the front, so he got into a lot of close quarters fighting in the cities. I'm pretty sure he got hit in the leg during one of the follow up 'mini Tets' in 1968 (his life was saved by an Australian journalist & he was sent to Australia for treatment). During his long recuperation the Ky-led faction he was a part of was virtually wiped out when a US helicopter gunship acting on a tip off about a supposed VC meeting shot up a meeting a number of its senior members. Others were arrested or sacked.

By the time Loan was back on his feet he had lost his job & the business had moved elsewhere.
