Capt Sutton’s postings have included, Greenwood, Chilliwack, Trenton, Toronto, NDHQ, Base Ottawa, Greenwood, Kingston, Toronto, Petawawa and finally back to NDHQ. As with most Engineers there have also been a few tours including; Golan Heights (80-81), Haiti (95), Golan Heights (96-97) Bosnia (2000), and Afghanistan (2004). Combined with courses and the obligatory trips north it meant significant moving around and time spent away from home.
Capt Sutton will be retiring in the Kingston Ontario where the first order of business will be to prepare for the Moose hunt in NFLD. After that there will be lots of time spent on the water relaxing, fishing and just cruising with the kids and grand kids.
