SFC Greg Lamonte Sutton
United States Army
KIA 06 June, 2007 Iraq
The sacrifices and hardships of war has hit home for one family in the East.

Sergeant First Class Greg Sutton was killed Wednesday morning when a roadside bomb exploded.

This was his second tour in Iraq - he deployed in January. Sutton was based in Fort Sill, Oklahoma, and
has served in the army for nearly 15 years.

As his family tells us Sutton was born to serve and died doing what he loved.

With war comes sacrifice and heartache sometimes follows. But a family that lives through the tragedy
of war has to carry on.

Evette Connor says, "I screamed you see people on the news everyday about these guys dying
overseas when it hits home and it's your brother - your only brother- it took a toll."

Connor talked with her brother, Sergeant First Class Greg Sutton, just two days before he was killed.

Connor says, "we e-mailed each other on Monday and he told me to keep my head up."

She is from a military family. But she didn't want her brother to go to Iraq a second time, but he did. A
choice she says she'll always be proud of.

Connor says, "he loved the army, he was a soldier for life."

Carolyn Ward, says she wished her nephew didn't have to go either. Now the people who have to live
without Sutton, find comfort in the two children he left behind.

Ward says, "all I could think about is what kind of life are they going to have now."

But Sutton will never fulfill his dreams for his family. Connor says, "to live the life in the army he
wanted to retire with his kids and his wife and his main dream was to buy his mama a home to see his
kids go to college."
