    Dear SGT Jedd Edward Ashby, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    With respect, Sir

    Curt Carter

  • Summer of '68

    Posted on 2/4/14 - by Vern Courtwright
    I knew Jedd in High school. We weren't that close till a friend and I ran into him one night at a dance in Tahlequah, Okla. that summer. He was home on leave before going to Vietnam and we were waiting to enter Navy boot camp in Sept. By that time, we had already had classmates die or come home wounded from Vietnam and we knew our time was coming. So we all decided to party hearty as long as we could,....and we did! Ran into another classmate a while later (Ray Williams) who had already been to Vietnam and I believe, was going back and he joined us for a few short weeks of utter bliss and fun! We all met girls and Loved them and left them,..partied liked there was no tomorrow and prepared to meet the real world. Jedd decided to spend his last week or so of leave, exclusively with his family and we understood. We all had one last talk over beers late one night and made plans to get together after we all got out. Everybody but Jedd agreed on it and he would not commit to it.. he said,.."I don't know if I'll be coming back." He left for Vietnam in the middle of August and within two weeks was KIA. He was a Poet, a Preacher and a gentle Soul,..so the Army made him a machine gunner. He earned the Bronze Star for his actions and I've always wondered how much good he could have done in this world had he lived. He was a better man than me and has been my inspiration for always doing the right thing,..my whole life!...until we meet again my Friend... (pic is me an Jedd summer of '68 - he's on the back of my bike).
