CHRISTIANSBURG (WSLS 10) - Two Montgomery County deputies are showing their support for their fallen brothers in Dallas.

Deputy Shrader and Deputy Loan made the trip down to Dallas this week in the sheriff's office's fallen officer patrol car.

They are there to attend the funerals for the five officers killed during last week's shootings.

"I know from past experience, it means everything because when you're going through something like that, you can't help but notice the patches and the badges from other departments, other states," said Montgomery County Sheriff Hank Partin.

Thousands of first responders from across the country are expected to attend the officers' funerals over the next two days.
