A photo of a cop’s sons saluting him on the front lawn before he goes to work is going viral.
According to FOX Carolina: “Jennifer Davisson shared one picture from the photo shoot on Facebook, showing a trooper saluting his five young sons as the boys return the gesture. “I am very thankful for the men and women who leave their family to protect mine,” Davisson said in the post. “How sweet is this image. Five sons to look up to their father.”
Christy Perry, the unidentified trooper’s wife, said the photo is powerful reminder of the risks cops face when they go to work.

“I want people to see what officers leave behind as they walk out the door each shift,” Perry said. “They sacrifice more than people realize. They miss birthdays and Christmas and anniversaries. They leave the ones they love to serve and protect complete strangers…all without any guarantee that they’ll make it home at the end of their shift. Our faith in God is what helps us let him walk out the front door at the beginning of each shift, praying he’ll make it back home to us.”
