Pfc Ashline First 'Missing,' Then Word of Death Arrives: Three telegrams, following in swift succession over the weekend, first, informed Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Ashline of Jewell Street that their son, Private First Class Paul S. Ashline was "missing in action" - and then confirmed that the 19-year-old youth had died in action in Vietnam. The first one, from Major J.C. Lambert, read in part, "The Secretary of the Army has asked me to express our deep regret that your son died in Vietnam as the result of gunshot wounds in the head and shoulder. Please accept our deepest sympathy."

The third telegram, from the Disposition Branch, Memorial Division, Department of the Army, concerned details of transportation and funeral arrangements, saying in part, "This information concerns your son, Pfc. Paul S. Ashline. The remains of your loved one will be transported to a U.S. Port by the first available military airlift. "At the port, the remains will be contained in a metal casket (accompanied by a military escort) and shipped by most expeditious means to any funeral director designated by the next of kin or to any national cemetery in which there is available grave space."

A member of the First Cavalry, Pfc. Ashline is believed to have been participating in a medical helicopter rescue mission of U.S. troops encircled by the Vietcong and suffering heavy losses. Five helicopters were reported to have been shot down during the battle. Ashline was born in St. Albans on July 17, 1946. After attending Holy Angels School and Bellows Free Academy, he was employed by the L.A. Demars Co. of Winooski before entering the service in July 2, 1965.

Besides his parents, he leaves four brothers, Peter, Donald, Philip and Stephen, all at home, also five sisters, Dianna, Robin, Tammy and Arthea, all at home, and Mrs. Eugene (Rosalie) Coderre of Newport. Funeral arrangements will be in charge of Driscoll and Moran, with the remains expected to arrive in St. Albans around the middle of this month.
