WW1 116th infantry Lt.

Sutton was originally a Sgt. in the 4th Virginia Infantry (Suffolk Grays) part of the Virginia National Guard. This unit became Company E of the 116th Infantry regt, 29th Div. A unit history came with the studio picture along with some WW1 veteran organization hats. Thanks for looking.

This second framed portrait of Lt. Sutton was found in a different local antique shop. This one he wears his cover. The back of the portrait states it was taken in 1919, and a Mrs. J. E. Leggett will be charged $1.50 for the portrait.

Those are great..! Really like the one with the cover. I'll check to see if he's in the early 20s yearbook.....
I just checked my books and found out that after he was commissioned he was assigned to the 114th Infantry Regiment.
