He defended us here, on the Lathrup Village, Michigan police force - and abroad, in the military.

Officer Matt Hilton gave his life for what he believed in.

He was killed last year in Afghanistan, while serving with the Michigan Army National Guard.

His home state honored him with a memorial coin this past weekend. And we honor Officer Matt Hilton as part of our focus on National Police Week.

    Just another victim of Collateral damage with all the senseless deaths in the Middle East. Now even our soldiers are viciously killing innocent civilians over there. When does it stop.
