Cedric King joined the Army after high school. College had to wait because he didn’t want his mom to take on debt for his education. He had no expectations except to make his mom and grandparents proud. He headed to Iraq, became an elite Army Ranger, went back to Iraq, and then, in 2012, Afghanistan.
He was leading his platoon on a foot patrol, searching for an improvised explosive device (IED) facility when, he says, "I found out the hard way where the explosive was.” Twelve men walking ahead of him had stepped on the same spot, but it was Cedric’s step that triggered the IED.
