Bedford, VA - One of the original Bedford Boys has passed away.
M. Pride Wingfield was a part of Company A until 1943 when he became part of the 63rd Division, so he did not go in on D-Day.
Wingfield was actually stationed in England.
While there, Wingfield was a part of the Plymouth Yankees, a baseball team made up of soldiers from the 116th Infantry Regiment. They were good too, with a 33 and 0 record.
Pride Wingfield always took part in the D-Day commemorations.
The 96-year-old was laid to rest Monday afternoon with full military honors.
3235 Hoffman Street, Harrisburg, PA 17110
