BRIDGE CITY, Tx. – A husband and wife in blue are getting a lot of attention for a heartwarming post on Facebook.
The photo shows Officer Brittany Hilton and her husband, Steven Hilton, in a squad car on Thanksgiving.
“All you may see in this photo is two smiling police officers. But there is more,” wrote Brittany. “We are husband and wife, parents to four beautiful girls, we are a son and a daughter, a Brother and sister, a grandson and granddaughter, a Niece and nephew.”
While many people were spending time with their families on Thanksgiving, Brittany and her husband were protecting citizens in Bridge City, Texas.
She said she felt the need to share the photo to help protect her fellow officers in the line of duty following recent protests against police brutality.
“We are attacked daily and getting killed just for putting on a badge,” wrote Brittany. “We are risking our lives.”
