Mortarman Cody Tribble is pictured with members of his unit in Afghanistan, along with a copy of former Wilson County Sheriff Terry Ashe's biography about his life and time in Vietnam and Wilson County. The book has provided Tribble with a touch of home and a chance to relate to another Wilson Countian's war experiences from decades ago.

 

Former Wilson County Sheriff Terry Ashe's autobiography, "Ashes of Bluebird," has made quite a splash since its release last year. Ashe's story of his experiences as a decorated soldier in Vietnam and free-wheeling county sheriff continue to bring back memories for some and strike a cord with others.

The following is a letter Ashe received from another of Wilson County's favorite sons, Cody Tribble, whose family is as steeped in the history of the county as Ashe's own. It seems Tribble and his comrades in Afghanistan have been enjoying Ashe's account of Wilson County back in the day.
