Ba r bier VETERAN QM SERGEANT LEAVES FOR CAMP LEE A man's wortn to his community in civil life or to his organization in military life is usually measured by the ldnd of memory he lea v e s behind. The void that T /Sgt. Nolan T. Ashby has created in Tyndall's QM Detach:nen t is a g r e a t one. His leaving for O.C.S. a t Camp Lee, Virg inia, has created a gap that will be difficult to bridge. Sgt. is a soldier of the old school, having enlist ed in the Army back in February, 1928. His first assignment was with the Field Artillery at Fort Sam Houston, Texas. He served the r e for three years before being transferred to Schofield Barracks, lu. After a three-year h i tch o n the Pacific Island post, Ash b y returned to the "States" for an assignment with the Air Corps at Barksdale Field, La. He was with the Ai r Corps tw o years before transferring to tl1e Quartermaster Corps on the same field, and has been a QM man eve r since. H e arrived at TJ-ndall in January, 1942. In the discharge of his duties a s first sergeant of his detachment Sgt. Ashby was able to draw on his vast store of experiences, and they h a v e stood him in good stead upon many occasions.
