Birth: Jun. 11, 1966, USA
Death: May 12, 2007
Baghdad, Iraq

Sgt. First Class Connell of Lake City, Tenn., graduated from Anderson County High School in 1984. During his 19 years in the Army, he visited 42 states and 13 different countries. He shared his experience with students at Lake City Middle School where two of his own kids attend class. When Connell was in East Tennessee on leave earlier this month, he visited Lake City Middle School and talked about the work and the military lifestyle. He spoke to his 12-year-old son's class and 14-year-old daughter's class. He had just recovered from a shrapnel wound to his one of his legs when he came home for two weeks of leave. He took each of his three children out of school for one day to spend the day with them. He took his oldest son, 16-year-old Nick, horseback riding in the Smokies. He took Bryan to Knoxville Center and to a movie. His daughter wanted to go to West Town Mall. She wanted to get a pedicure and so did her father. They got them together. He was killed just south of Baghdad at age 40.
