Video: Tribute to Largo Soldier

The Hillsborough Sheriff's Office shared this video tribute to fallen American hero U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Matthew Sitton.

The body of U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Matt Sitton returned home to Largo last month with an honor escort. Sitton, 26, died Aug. 2 in Afghanistan; it was the third deployment for the Indian Rocks Christian School graduate.

The video, released by the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office with the Sitton family's permission, follows the fallen soldier's journey from MacDill Air Force Base in South Tampa to Largo.
