Terry Sutton of the US Army

Today we salute Sergeant Major Terry Sutton of the US Army. This salute was sent to us by his nephew Jake Abernathy. Terry served in the Army for 25 years but even so it takes someone extra special to achieve the rank of Sergeant Major, which is the highest rank possible for an enlisted man and only the most committed and accomplished service members get there. In fact Drew says there are many people who serve that long and never qualify for that rank. Jake says Terry was as committed as they come: he enlisted in 1994 and became an Army Ranger, serving until 2014, and ultimately doing 5 tours of duty to Iraq and Afghanistan where he led several dangerous missions. He is still active on base, helping to motivate and train young soldiers.
