The young Deerfield man was killed in action in 1918, the last year of World War I, when he was fighting with the allies in France at Chateau-Thierry. Tom Ashley was much loved by his classmates and was described as honest, straightforward, and dignified and yet "always ready for a rough-house." A letter from a fellow soldier is included.
