Another Edgefield County son heads to Iraq

web posted December 28, 2007
EDGEFIELD – Pvt. 1st Class Zeb Blackledge was home for Christmas and met with EdgefieldDaily.com in Edgefield on Thursday just before heading to Atlanta to fly out and begin his tour of duty in Iraq. Pvt. Blackledge was the focus of a August report when he also made national news after North Dakota Rep. Earl Pomeroy gave up his seat on a flight to Blackledge.

Pvt. Blackledge was with his mother and father, Nora and Kenneth Korreck of Edgefield, (Pictured above) who were accompanying him on his trip to Atlanta. “I will be in Iraq for a year,” Blackledge said adding that he has always kept up with the happenings “back home” by reading EdgefieldDaily.com. “I read it every day.”

Pvt. Blackledge, a former Strom Thurmond student, said he wanted to provide his email address so he could receive messages from friends here in Edgefield County. His email address is zebadiah.blackledge@us.army.mil

EdgefieldDaily.com thanked Pvt. Blackledge for his service to our country and wished him well and for his speedy and safe return. Pvt. Blackledge said he hoped to return before his tour of duty was over for a short visit.
