James Dana is not forgotten by his family, his memory and legends lives with all of us. His act of bravery is passed on from generation to generation when we gather. His memory is especially remember on November 2, all souls day. It gives me pride to let my fellow co workers know in the Department of Correction in Az that my greatgrandfather was in law enforcement. I am proud to come from such a noble man. Thank you from all of his family for the kind words.
