T/5 Sutton was one of two casualties during Operation Cowboy in April 1945. The Czech city of Bela nad Radbuzou created a memorial to remember his sacrifice. An extract from the 2nd Cav Association website best sums up Manzís service: T/5 Owen W. Sutton was from Kinston, N.C. He was born Dec. 8th, 1916, and was undoubtedly called Pops or Old Man or the like by his troop-mates during the fight across Europe, before he died in an Army field hospital in Nurnberg, Germany, on May 1st, 1945, at the ripe old age of 28, from wounds received the previous day in defense of the Hostau horse farm against a German SS counter-attack during Operation Cowboy.
