Now the family of Specialist James E. Dutton is expressing its gratitude to the people of Green Country.

Dutton's father said this in a statement he sent to News on 6:

I lack the words to properly express how we all feel.... This is what I want everyone in this country to see, not just the sacrifice of my son but what happens to the military families, friends and neighbors and members of communities and how these losses affect everyone.
