The Pridgen, Wallace and Cooper families were blessed beyond words to witness the return of their son, grandson and great grandson from his tour of duty in Afghanistan. The family traveled to Ft. Lee, Virginia to witness this momentous occasion.
Cedric served with the 109th Quartermaster Company out of Ft. Lee Virginia. While on his tour of duty, he received The Army Commendation Medal and quite a few Certificates of Achievement including one for Wartime Service.
Cedric is a member of Bethel AME church in Hinesville, GA where Rev. Richie Williams serves as pastor. He is the son of Ret. SFC Ricky & Mrs. Tanya Pridgen of Hinesville, GA, the grandson of Eugene Simmons, Sr and Ron & Beverly Wallace of Savannah and the great grandson of Mrs Arna T. Cooper of Savannah.
We are greatful to all those who prayed for our child while he was in harms way.
The family is not only thankful for the return of Cedric but we also thank God for the return of his entire unit “without the loss of one”. To God be the glory.
